Common greenhouse poinsettia production problems
Common insect pests found during greenhouse production of poinsettia include whiteflies, fungus gnats, thrips, shoreflies and spider mites (Photo 1). Monitor insect populations by placing yellow sticky cards – one card just above the crop every 2,000 square feet, replacing weekly – and scouting the crops regularly, randomly picking up pots and searching all portions of plants for problems. This can help growers determine when and how often insecticides should be applied.
