White Fly Infestation??

Hi everyone,
We have a white fly infestation in our yard this year. I bought ladybugs today from the Flower Bin.
I wondered if anyone else has had success getting rid of the white flies with ladybugs?

RE: White Fly Infestation??

You won't get rid of white flies until next year. They'll be all over your plants all summer. They die below 24F or something.

Grin and bear it. Just make really, really sure they don't get on the indoor plants.

Next time, check where you buy your plants. Having experienced the nightmare, I got to the point where I could spot a white fly on a lemon in a supermarket from half an aisle away.
