Asked before about whiteflies in general terms; now need technical: what should I use on date palms to prevent whiteflies...would rather use organic if possible.
Neighbor uses a combination of rosemary oil, sesame oil and clove oil with water and a filler of some kind. Do you carry anything you recommend for palms?

Neem oil is an organic and works to not only kill but also repel whiteflies. You can find products with neem oil at Home Depot. You'll find Green Light brand and Shultz's among others. Use according to label directions. Best wishes with your palms.
