after reading this----Yellow sticky traps are helpful for monitoring and suppressing adult populations. If found, use the Bug Blaster to hose off plants with a strong stream of water and reduce pest numbers. Natural predators of this pest include ladybugs and lacewing larvae, which feed on their eggs and the whitefly parasite which destroys nymphs and pupae. For best results, make releases when pest levels are low to medium. If populations are high, use a least-toxic, short-lived organic pesticide to establish control, then release predatory insects to maintain control. Insecticidal soap, neem oil and botanical insecticides can be used to spot treat heavily infested areas if population become intolerable.

Tip: Horticultural oils, which work by smothering insects, are very effective on all stages of this pest.

i busted out the SM-90 and hung a sticky fly strip from the bag o tricks---it has 1% coriander oil---94% sulphonated canola oil---5% triethaneolamine---sprayed it everywhere---after shaking the plants the flies flew---many got caught on the fly strip---haha----hopefully i smothered the rest of the sob's and their eggs, nymphs, and pupae that could not flee with the drenching of SM-90

sm-90 also makes pm un-habitable due to the sulpher

Are you doing anything for the larvae in the soil? Using a drench like Sierra Naturals 209 or something? I get you're killing the adults so they can't breed, but there are still eggs and larvae in the soil right? LIke a fungus gnat? Or do they not lay their eggs in the buckets?

hi Mel---the white fly is not much like a fungus gnat living in the soil and harmless to your crop---white fly tendencies and damage are more like a flying spider mite---laying eggs larvae and adults living on the undersides of the leaves---heavy infestations will also include webbing just like the spider mite---these sons of beaches will suck the life right out of your plant if left to do their thang---kinda strange to have them in an indoor garden actually

i am pleased to say they are completely gone and my veg room is much happier for it

When I sprayed the avid for the thripes, it killed the few little gnats or white flies that float around the room. I rarely see them since then.

yea still undecided if i use the sm90 just for the whitefly or go with the avid to get a bit more bang for my buck maybe get me some gnats too---would also be preventative just in case the spider mite thinks he might make a guest appearance too


HA think i just figured it out---the sm90 is an oil based wetting agent---think the answer might be spray both

no time for nematodes friend---these are all ready late to be moved into flower---hit them with a sm90/floramite mix---crossing fingers---take some clones in the next couple days---move them into flower---done
