The Q&A Archives: Silverflies

Question: I have two tropical hibiscus trees, which have become infested with silverleaf whiteflies. What do you recommend for getting rid of these pests? It may be too late for one tree; it has lost most of its leaves. Each is in a large pot, kept inside during winter and outside during summer. The whiteflies congregate on the underside of each leaf, leaving a sticky residue and swarm about when disturbed.
