White Fly
Iím looking for an organic control for white fly. Iím growing indoor tomatoes and broccoli.

  • Encarisa Formosa - a beneficial wasp.
  • Pyrethrum spray - make sure it is organically acceptable. This should be the first step in controlling whitefly, especially if the problem is bad. But don’t use pyrethrum while Encarisa is active - they will be seriously affected by the spray. Pyrethrum needs a minimum of four days to break down sufficiently to be safe for Encarisa.
  • Yellow, sticky boards, which are readily available, attract the whitefly and have the benefit of being an ongoing control - however, these will also trap beneficial insects such as ladybird, beetles and lacewings.
