Most damage by the whitefly is inflicted indirectly through the transmission of plant viruses, the most damaging of which is Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV). Trap crops may be one means of reducing whitefly populations and TYLCV incidence in tomato. Because squash is more attractive to whitefly adults… Expand
