Whiteflies blog post Copy
Whiteflies are tiny little white flies that suck the sap from plants. They are typically found on the undersides of leaves.
 
Treatment Options:
  • Placing yellow sticky traps out in your garden or applying a homemade garlic spray or neem oil can help. Make sure to not apply the neem oil though when the temperature is above 90, or else you could suffocate your plant!
     
  • The use of beneficial insect friends, such as green lacewings, ladybugs, and praying mantis, can also help to get rid of these flies.
     

Plants to Watch:

  • These pests are very wide spread, but a few of their favorite plants include:
    • Bok Choy
    • Cilantro/Coliander
    • Marjoram
    • Rosemary
    • Sage
