    As some of you know I keep some of my Cps at a community greenhouse and the chairman of the greenhouse has recently passed. The new chairman is starting to bother me a bit. I know the former chairman can not be replaced but this guy's getting out of hand.

    We had a very strict spraying schedule in place just to keep things like white fly down. Well, it hasn't been sprayed all spring and the pest population is getting out of hand. I contacted him 3 weeks ago and still nothing has been done.

    How should I go about this....

    And until you get a response, all you can really do is eliminate the badly infested plants. The pristine growing conditions in the green house are beneficial not only to your plants, but the pests too (as I'm sure you know.) So either take badly infested plants out then leave them away from the rest, treat it yourself, or throw it away.

    It sucks, but you gotta do what you can to keep it from spreading too much.

    BLACK OPPS MISSION!!! (ask bugweed to help you, I understand he is a black nija hehe)
    Enter with the cover of night... Spray bottle on your back, mask on your face (you should wear one I hear when you spray... lol), gain access to the g/h through one of the large, slow spinning fans (all the movies always have those) once inside spray till your hear is content!! Then, go out the front door (you can reuse the slow spinning fan, but it makes for a bad story) then the next day, bring in a few lady bugs or something talking about how you'll take care of the probly via "natural methods"
    Seriously, sorry to hear about the problems.

    While that's true, I shudder at the idea of trying to sneak in through one of the fans at the greenhouses at my college. They're like 6 feet tall and the air coming out ticks in at about mach 5.

    And just before you spray the first plant you can turn to the camera and say, "white fly... I'd like to introduce you to my friend, BLACK DEATH..."

    And then everything would be in slow-mo after that.

    Of course, we need a "doctor" to use hifalutin scientific words jumbled together to "explain" to the main character what the pesticide is doing to the whitefly. Of course, we need to mention something about genetic mutagens, DNA, possibly RNA, and a few made up words.

    we have a combination to get in so that's no problem...

    also, I'm interested in expanding my space and he won't get back to me on what spaces are available. If he can't handle the work why did he accept the torch.
