MarijuanaGrowGuide - Growing Marijuana Guide - White Flies
Looking for High Quality Cannabis Seeds?
First thing is that sometimes aphids are referred to as whiteflies. A true whitefly is not an aphid, and if you need info on how to eradicate aphids, then check out the section on Dealing With Aphids.
The bad news about whiteflies is that they may be potentially the most damaging pests to your marijuana grow out there. Their damaging potential dwarfs that of even the dreaded spider mite. The other bad news, whiteflies multiply at an mind-blowing fast rate, and by the time you notice a infestation of whiteflies, it is usually too late and your plants have already sustain some irreversible damage that will effect the quality of your marijuana harvest. The good news is that whiteflies are an extremely uncommon pest for most marijuana growers. The better news is that they are dealt with just like spider mites with a natural killer like No Spider Mite. So if you are already taking steps to kill spider mites, you dont need to do anything else. Any spider mite controller will also quickly kill any whitefly and not allow them to produce a colony that could potentially destroy your marijuana crop. Ladybugs will also feed generously on whiteflies.
To detect a large colony of whiteflies, you should shake your plants and look for a swarm of whiteflies buzzing around. However like I mentioned earlier, prevention of whiteflies is much better then eradicating a established swarm that probably has already effected the quality of your cannabis.
If you are done dealing with infestation in your marijuana grow, then its time to germinate some seeds.
