Whitefly infestations
« on: June 27, 2024, 11:47 »
Morning everyone
I hope you have some sunshine where ever you are today.
Whitefly....never usually a problem on the veg crops until this year  :ohmy:
Sprouts ( ive had cabbage white infestations) cauliflowers and the seed heads on some sutherland kale ive left for the bees. It looks like a dense grey mould there are so many of them

The sprouts and cauliflowers are covered not that this has stopped the aphids. Any suggestions for non chemical management other than leaf removal??

I actually haven't seen hardly any cabbage white butterflies so far this year. Anyone else noticed this?

Thanks in advance
Twood
Happy Gardening May your plot be abundant in veg and free from slugs ! :)

Last year My PSB were heavily infected. Every time I saw a ladybird I placed it in a pot and took it to feast on the bugs and it worked! I did the same with my gooseberry bush, Invicta. Its new growth always gets heavily infested with greenfly, none this year!!!
