trap plants for whiteflies
I've been reading a book lately called "Gardening for Geeks" by Christy Wilhelmi. in it there was brief mention of using "trap plants", or plants that are so attractive to insects that they leave your crops alone and go after the trap plants. an example listed was nasturtium for aphids. are there any plants like this that would draw whiteflies away from my pepper plants? I'm a first year grower, and currently losing the battle. soap sprays keep them at bay, sort of. lacewings help, but they're not doing enough. I'd rather do things a better way, if there is a better way.
