Whitefly infestation is one of the main problems in our vegetable garden. Although we try to deal with this by adding neem oil to the water and soaking the groundnut cake, it often does not give lasting effectiveness.

These is good way to get rid of the of whiteflies in our kitchen garden. If white flies are detected early and if you use this mixture, will never have white flies trouble. Only want to do it once a week. It can be done in the morning or in the evening. The main pesticide to be added is Verticillium.

How to make this insecticide?

In a liter of water, mix 5 ml of Verticillium, 5 ml of neem oil, 5 ml of castor oil and 5 g of powdered jaggery for about 5 minutes. Then spray the solution on the lower leaves of the plant with a sprayer. This means that whiteflies are more common on the lower leaves of the plant.

Therefore, it is important to make sure that the leaves are not infested with whitefly. If there is white flie on any side due to our negligence, it will multiply and spread to other plants.

If the solution is currently being applied to a chilli plant, make sure that it does not bother the nearby tomato plant. White fly infestation is exacerbated if used in one plant and not sprayed in another plant. Another thing to do with it is to keep the yellow trap. It is also very good at dealing with whiteflies.
