Hi Fellow Sufferers....

Well, if it isn't one thing it's another, Whiteflies.

I'm deploying yellow sticky traps and earthworm castings..... Do they do any good?

Please advise how to rid the problem.

A couple of things.
Interplant with French marigold....whitefly can't stand them
Under glass.....shake the plants to get them airborn...suck them up with a Hoover. Repeat 3 times once every 10 days. Their life cycle is just 10 in theory you should get them all!!.
More Incarsia Formosa....they are natural predators of whitefly. You should be able to get them on line.
