  title={Whitefly Bioecology and Management in Latin America},

This is not entirely satisfactory, however, and removal of virus-infected plants is often suggested to minimize within-field spread of viruses. Since whiteflies may transmit disease from one crop to another, or from weeds to crops, vegetation management is important.
