Controlling Whiteflies and Aphids (page 2 of 2)

by National Gardening Association Editors

Tips

Aphids can easily be removed from a plant by knocking them off with a stream of water from a hose. Once off, they tend not to climb back up.

To control small populations of whiteflies on houseplants, approach them in early morning and evening when they are most sluggish. Use a vacuum cleaner set on low suction to remove the whiteflies.
