Previously imported parasite may control invading whitefly
Not available – first paragraph follows: During urban grid surveys in September 1982, San Diego County biologists discovered a new invading whitefly on avocado. Ray Gill, insect taxonomist for the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), identified the new invader as Tetraleurodes sp. Steve Na-kahara of the United States National Museum then confirmed both the identification and the fact that the whitefly was new to California. Gill and Naka-hara agree that this whitefly is the same undescribed species known from the Caribbean, Central America, Florida, and Mexico.
