Phillip,

Whiteflies have natural enemies, which often will keep them in check unless destroyed by pesticide sprays that kill the beneficial insects. When their numbers increase to the point of requiring spray control your lowest toxicity options are soap and oil sprays. Additionally sprays of neem products (a natural, low toxicity insecticide) can be effective for managing whiteflies.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
