I have several plants and i don’t have a lot of white flies but i do have some. I have read your information on this matter and i would like to know some more. I have sprayed my plants with a insecticide soap for white flies but i also have seen them on top of my loose soil in the plants. What do you suggest for this. I have also looked at my plants and cleaned the on both the sides of the leaves. Please let me know what i have to do to get more control of these pest. The plants are not infested but i do have some. I wait for you response. Thank you.
It sounds like you are almost there. Treating your plants with INSECTICIDAL SOAP will no doubt kill most that are hatched and active. And it sounds like you are taking care to get all sides of the plant. But remember this product does not provide any residual action. That means any stages you miss when spraying will continue to thrive and that’s probably what you’re seeing.
To prevent this from happening, I suggest you go to another organic option we have listed as MULTI PURPOSE INSECT KILLER. This active will do a better job because it will remain active for a day or two.
I also suggest you spray the top soil directly – even if you don’t see any white flies when during the time you treat – because they will sometimes hide in the soil and be easy to miss. Multi Purpose Spray won’t hurt the plant or soil and it’s fine to use in the manner.
