Have a potted orange hibiscus blooming well now, outdoors. Beautiful.

...but discovered white flies yesterday.

After reading up, I used the hose to knock most of them off, then sprayed insecticidal soap. Tomorrow I plan to use Neem oil on the plant. Both together should knock out all cycles of life of the bug, as from my research.

Unless anyone else has a better idea...?

Have you had to get rid of white flies?? Your experiences please.

Thanks

Do exactly what you said you are doing and you'll be successful and happy
Be sure to spray under the leaves also not just over the top.

The insecticidal spray one day and Neem oil the next took care of most all of the white flies...
