and just hosed it down made sure allthe white flies from the plant were removed and the underside ofthe leaves were the most affected so make sure that when you're using thismethod make sure you check all the underside of the leavesand then use a hose and water to just spray down and remove all the whiteflylarvae eggs as well as the white flies themselves this method works great when you have a large area that's infected for example thishibiscus plant was
pretty much all infested with whiteflies now sometimes you might have leaves that are very infested with white flies eggs as well as larvae as well asthe white flies themselves so its easiest to just toss them out andthrow them the second method that will see today tocontrol white flies is to use a yellow sticky trap nowthis method works really well because white flies get attracted tothe yellow color and the go towards it and get stuck and it works great for
all your vegetable crops and it doesreally a good job because it not only captures whiteflies but canalso capture aphids so as you can see here i've tied this yellow sticky traps next to my tomatoplants and by making sure that white flies arenot around you can ensure healthy vegetables thatare growing on your plants without any diseases now the problem withthe white flies is that they carry diseases from one plant to theother
