    Default White Fly Infestation

    On one of the indoor grows I'm observing, the plant seems to have been infested with white flies. We're using soap and water to treat it today but was wondering if this is the best method or if there's something else we can use that's better?

    Pyrethrum 5EC is always good for pest control i have found. You could always add in some ladybugs an plenty those yellow sticky fly catch pads

    when your lights go on give the plant a good shake the white fly should fly around like jokers said use pyrethrum . by spraying them while they fly a round should basically drown them and kill them

    Great, I didn't even know about pyrethrum until this post! The soap and water worked but if the buggers come back, I'll give the pyrethrum a go. Thanks!

    Nah, we even wait until the leaves start to droop a bit before watering. But the white flies did appear after we watered.
