White fly epidemic
« on: February 10, 2018, 07:47:33 07:47 »
Has anybody been able to find a suitable fish safe method of controlling white fly in an Aquaponics greenhouse. Some of my beds are crawling with small(2mm) white bugs among the clay balls over the winter. I am sure as soon as it starts greening up they will be on the leaves etc so Best time now to treat I think.  I have thought about isolating each bed in turn water wise then treating with normal bug killer so flushed water is delayed going to the sump. I have ideal opportunity at the moment waiting for weather to warm before repopulating with fresh fingerlings. I look forward to any help offered?

Hi Steve, sorry to hear about your bug problem. I had an infestation last year and in the end I was taking the infested braches off of the plants and carefully removing it from the green house. I know this is not a great solution. The other thing I did was to find as many lady birds as I could. I hope you find a solution.
