Little White Flies

by L. B. Jones

I had an infestation of little white flies in my winter garden. Diazanon did nothing to inhibit their growth. I found Neem oil on the internet and used that in a mixture with Dawn dish soap. So far the little white flies are gone, gone, gone.

Neem oil use on whitefly
by: Birgit

Hi L.B.

That's good to hear!

The little white flies you saw are likely whiteflies, which actually aren't flies at all but are most closely related to aphids.

And yes, neem oil spray works as well on whitflies as it works on aphids. The soap alone will already help, and the neem oil prevents the nymphs that are present from developing into adults.

Thanks for writing!
