: I have had considerable greenhouse experience with whiteflies.  They
: develop resistance to pesticides quite readily; we had to rotate
: treatment with various pesticides on a schedule.  Systemic insecticides
: like Temik (aack! nasty stuff!) work best, though alternating malathion
: and pyrethrins will do a fair job.  You should use the yellow sticky


I have found Temik to be quite effective but I thought it was taken off 
the market.  It is quite potent and should be handled with care.(no
