whitefly and lantana
I read in one of the messages that lantana attracts whiteflies. Last summer I had a huge problem with whiteflies and tried every method for controll without success. I do have lot of lantana in my backyard. They are lovely to see flower so profusely and are quite tough in this desert weather. If people have had luck controlling whiteflies by getting rid of lantana I am willing to sacrifice these plants. I hate those flies as they damage everything else from roses to tomatoes and other vegies. And when you have such heavy infestation you sure do not feel like growing and eating any herbs loaded with whitefly eggs under the aromatic leaves.
Whiteflies have started now and I have started spraying but I am dreading the invasion my garden suffered last summer.
