Silverleaf Whiteflies in Cotton

Silverleaf whiteflies (SLWF) have been in some cotton fields in our area for the past few weeks in low numbers. Hopefully rain showers will continue to get to everyone and beat the adults down. However, I am noticing an uptick in some fields. There are a couple of handouts that I hope you will find useful when SCOUTING and TREATING for these troublesome insects. Hopefully, the SLWF numbers will not reach threshold in our area, but we need to be prepared and ready to react in case the situation worsens as it has in some areas in Southwest Georgia.
