whiteflies on blackberries

steve_in_los_ososMay 29, 2012

Argh. All I can think of when I see whiteflies is either a flame thrower or Round-up to entirely destroy the plants.

Can someone suggest a less drastic approach that might work for my blackberries (and why are they not on the adjacent boysenberries?????)?

You might consider all season hort oil. I'm using it on spider mites and if white flies show up they'll get a face full too.
