How to get rid of white flies on chilli plants?
My chilli plants are covered with white flies. I tried spraying soapy water. With that the number of flies were less for few days. But now again almost all the leaves are covered with them,
Was the soapy water insecticidal? I'm pretty sure there is some that won't hurt your chili plants. Or you may want to try buying some traps. Spiders & ladybugs eat them, that may even be an option.
Use dawn dish soap and spray the underneath of the plants. Other wise you need to find some other kind of bugs that will eat them. Spiders and lizards are the usual good guys here try to encourage the spiders and lizards to live near the chili's by adding some compost to the beds around the chili's
Ants are another good bug to have in the chili garden for this reason: they keep other bugs from eating the leaves and leaving eggs on the leaves.
Add a spoonful of turmeric powder in 1 cup water, mix well. Sprinkle this water on the plant atleast three times per day...repeat this steps if needed...
