    Damn! A day after I reading this thread I found these same things on a Nep I received from a Hawaiian nursery! It looks like they recommend Orthene.

    the outbreak is growing......

    i was told to use orthene buy the seller and since it was an outdoor pesticide i wasn't sure, and people said it was pretty strong stuff.

    i also contacted on of my favorite nurseries and they recommended using bayer brand insecticide or and insecticide that is high in imidacloprid.

    i bought the Bayer Advanced concentrate

    and followed the instructions to mix it and i treated them the day after i used the neem and repotted, things seem to be ok with the plants, not burning the leaves. hard to tell there might be a couple spots but nothing major yet. it says

    +kills surface insects in 24hours
    +kills soil insects for up to 3 months
    +up to 90 day subsurface insect protection
    +kills tons for insects including whiteflies

    im not sure compared to others if its high in imidacloprid but it has .72% though its also a concentrate, (mix tablespoon/gal)...o well i just read its for outdoor purposes but safe after it dries (1hr) so its too late now they're all treated including houseplants

    ill let everyone know how everything goes

    Thanks for the info dustin! My problem is I have animals. So treating with nasty chemicals is not really an option for me right now. I can take the plants out side and treat in the spring. Keep me updated and I will do the same.

    Hmmm, reading this I was reminded why I NEVER allow the pesticides to get into the water trays any more.

    Cats will drink even the nastiest, peatiest water, even if they have an unlimited supply over by the food.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    HELLO? Did you say that?

    I read in THIS tread that someone received a plant with the pest from a Hawaiian NURSERY!

    In fact, many traders are more careful than nurseries. Besides, you can't buy everything!

    Trading also gives a much better "bang for your buck".

    Yup ill keep everyone updated on the progress.

    yes i have pets too, i have some neps up away from the cats and dogs... and the rest are in my room so no animals get there besides me really

    i also googled whiteflies real quick after i got an idea of what the pest was and there was an organic way to kill them with like a fungus im not exactly sure one what it was, but if anyone else has info about this it would be great to hear some more info, unless i read wrong.

    i was also considerting trying that one organic brand of insecticide, i forgot the name but it was between the bayer brand or orthene, which were recommended to me, or one that i had no clue about. its name was like organicide or something like that.

    Also you can mix the brand i got into a lawn treatable mix (3tbl/gallon or something like that), and it said after you spray let it dry or sit for about an hour, then it should be ok, which i think is basic for lots of lawn pesticides. and i though well my dogs eat grass sometimes. so maybe its not that lethal to animals when in extreamly small doses, it says once it dries its waterproof for a certain amout of time...like the 3month or so.

    As SDCPs notes - it's not only from trades. However, by watching the forums, you can get a good idea of which commercial outfits are 'safe' and also have a clue which growers are likely to have issues. Based on risk/reward, I've limited my trading the last few years...

    Recently I agreed to trade with an 'unknown' grower. Since I didn't want to risk involving my more-established plants, I took a hint from fish keepers. I set up a separate quarantine tank for the new arrival. I'm not yet sure how long I'll keep it in there all alone but it'll probably be be a month or 2. While the neps tend to handle pesticides pretty well, utrics & dews - not so much...
    All the best,
