    The whiteflies infestation is really hard to eliminate. And after using quite a number of chemical control, i conclude that dish washer detergent is the best whiteflies treatment. It does not hurt the plants and does not pollute the environment. Most importantly, the whiteflies really reduce tremendously! =)

    Good to hear that your having good luck with the whiteflies. My biggest problem with crotons is the new croton scale. But I know now how to control that.

    I got some granular stuff called Malice from Jeff. So far it has worked very well for me. Not cheap but well worth it in my opinion! :rolleyes:
