    So far, 1550 species of whiteflies (sap-sucking insects in the order Hemiptera) have been identified. The rapid spread of Bemisia tabaci has occurred throughout the globe and it is regarded as the most notorious species. It is a complex species known to contain many biotypes namely, New World (Biotype -A), B-biotype MEAM1 (Biotype-B or Bemisia argentifolii, and MED (Biotype-Q) depending upon the geographical location. The complete information on the bio-ecology of important species along with the feeding mechanism has been presented in this book. The use of modern techniques of identification has added more biotypes considering the variations in host range, species of endosymbionts, virus transmission efficiency, and resistance to pesticides. The resistance and resurgence due to pesticides are discussed in this monograph, together with information on economic thresholds for judicious use of pesticides or release of natural enemies against whiteflies. The book also gives an overview of pest control methods, including chemical, cultural measures, biocontrol agents, resistant varieties, and mechanical devices. Based on the available information, an integrated model is suggested to contain the whitefly menace under different situations. Considering the key factors responsible for the outbreak of whiteflies, a sound system of IPM can be formulated. The book also discusses the use of semiochemicals and biotechnological tools likely to gain momentum in the future.
