Use as Biological Control:
Encarsia are used to control several species of whitefly indoors and outdoors. They can control silverleaf/sweet potato whitefly with increased quantity releases.  Like with most beneficial insects it is best to begin releasing Encarsia when Whitefly infestation is light.

Other whitefly predators such as; Delphastus catalinae (beetle) and Eretmocerus eremicus will co-exist with Encarsia formosa and help expedite control.
