Subject: Bio-Control Measures Effective contra White Fly
>I'd appreciate being sent information as to any bio-control or
>mechanical measures that have been proven effective contra white fly
>(Homopera, Trialeurodes vaporariorum & perhaps Bemesia tabaci).
>Unfortunately, beneficial organisms are rarely available except when
>bred to order here (few to none are available on demand), which limits
>the possibilities. Worse still, from what I'm told the problem seems to
>be due to a viral infection being transmitted by this vector, so any
>measure may be too late even if effective.
>So it looks like there will be no real substitute for preventative
>measures taken early on: Dust and ant control, breeding lacewing and
>encarsia to placing yellow sticky traps and spraying w/ insecticidal
>soap - all should help and tobacco* dust or tea is known to have done
>some good, but I'm hoping something else has been discoved that I'm not
>* the crop is not for the organic market, but when asked (as happened
>late yesterday when doing the weekly shopping at the local farmer's
>market), I prefer to never reccomend anything that's going to wreck much
>havoc with any naturally occuring controls that may be present.
