    This is by far and away the most destructive pest my collection faces. This creature is responsable for more plant death in my house than all other pests combined. Be afraid.... be very afraid!!

    This is ironic... the only serious posting I am getting is one by calling himself a cynic! Let me be more specific; I am looking for pictures of 6 or 8 legged pests, and John Madden's Thanksgiving turkey don't count. Sheeesh!

    Well I cant count their legs... but here are some pests I found today on a S x "Judith Hindle". I believe these are whitefly larva.

    Thanks, Steve. I think this topic would make for a legitimate FAQ. And how did you treat them?

    Steve, your only hope is to incinerate everything within 200 yards of that plant. You still won't get rid of them forever, but it's a start.

    Uhh Max.. that would wipe out my whole house and prolly at least 2 of my neighbors as well... lol I would be the homeless guy standing on the freeway onramp with the sign that says "Will work for whitefly poison"

    Jim, I doused it real well with Orthene. It says on the bottle that it kills whitefly. If it doesn't work I will have to find an alternate means of destruction.

    Answer to white fly infestation.
    Plant pings, they grow very healthy on white flies. It looks like it has snowed on them and in this heat. well! anyway.
    pings don't get them all but it is a start.
    Thanx for listening and keep 'em plants growin

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.
