How would you get rid of whiteflies?
Suspected that the browning wasnt natural as it occurred past cutting off the infected leaves & yesterday I saw a tiny white fly circling! They're sucking the sap off the leaves. Cinnamon? Soap &water? Whats your method? #whiteflies #avocado

A simple solution made from liquid dish soap and water will kill adult whiteflies without harming plants. Add 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap to 1 gallon of water and mix well. Pour the solution into a plastic spray bottle and spray it on all infested plants, saturating the leaves' upper and undersides and the stems.
i use neem oil for when i get pests on my plants.
Neem oil!
@KikiGoldblatt thank you for the advice! I have tried this first (since it doesn't require me to buy anything else yet) and will update about the plants!
@arden @yung thanks to both of you! If this simple solution doesn't work, do either of you recommend a brand of need oil?
@pettiteplants your very welcome.
