Natural method to repell whiteflies from Salvia D.
    #11210254 - 10/08/09 09:31 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Hey, I noticed earlier there was a bunch of whiteflies on my salvia. First thing I did was wash them away then spray neem oil. For now they seem to have gone away, but I see them hanging out on my furniture waiting to come back. We have a big plant of Pelargonium citrosum (citronella plant, mosquito plant) in the house and I think I've read it could help make them go away, so I put it near my salvia plants. Did anyone on here ever try it to keep whiteflies or certain pests away from plants?

Thanks!

no natural method but a long time ago i bought this spray specifically for white flies at a nursery. it came in this brown bottle with a crude drawing of a white fly. it was for an mj plant i had and it worked great. at that time i did not even know what the hell organic was. but it killed the shit outta them.

good luck putting up the classic fight. its a never ending thing with the leafy greens.

I'm going to see if neem oil helps at all, it worked for spidermites before. and this citronella plant should help maybe a tiny bit.

I recently posted this in another thread but here's a few remedies for whitefly: http://www.helium.com/items/795077-how-to-naturally-control-the-whitefly

My dad used to use popsickle sticks painted yellow with vaseline on them.  Adult whiteflies are attracted to yellow and stick in the vaseline.

That's weird. Neem oil was like a whitefly and fungus gnat holocaust for me but did almost nothing to spidermites.

It seems this citronella plant and the neem oil made them go away for good.

I've always used horticultural oil augmented with chilli and/or garlic and it has always worked well for me on cannabis and vegetable crops.
