Greenhouse Fly Control for Whiteflies and Fungus Gnats with balEnce Organic Fly Spray
Two of the more frequent insect pest problems greenhouse growers face are the white flies and fungus gnats. balEnce Organic Fly Spray with Beauveria bassiana controls both white flies and fungus gnats and, more importantly, their larvae, helping to kill off the inventory of insects that most likely are already inside the greenhouse.
Whiteflies are tiny, sap-feeding insects commonly found in greenhouses. They feed on plant sap, weakening plants and causing symptoms like yellowing and wilting. Additionally, whiteflies produce honeydew, a sticky residue that can lead to the growth of sooty mold, further hindering plant health. Their ability to transmit plant viruses, such as Tomato yellow leaf curl virus, makes them a significant concern for crop diseases. Whiteflies can quickly multiply, leading to severe infestations and economic losses. They infest a wide range of greenhouse crops, making them a common target for pest management efforts.
Fungus gnats are small, flying insects that are a common problem in greenhouse fly control. Their larvae feed on plant roots and organic matter in the soil, causing damage to the plant’s root system. This can lead to reduced nutrient uptake and weakened plants. Fungus gnats also act as vectors for plant pathogens, transmitting diseases from contaminated soil to healthy plants. Continuous feeding by their larvae can stress plants, making them more susceptible to other pests and environmental stressors. While adult fungus gnats are not harmful to plants, their presence can be a nuisance to greenhouse workers. Their rapid reproduction and population growth can result in widespread infestations, making them a significant concern for greenhouse management.
The active ingredient in balEnce products is a naturally occurring fungus Beauveria bassiana. This fungus specifically targets and kills the flies but does not harm humans, livestock, pets, or the beneficial insects that are so important to our environment.
