I wish to ask what I can use to spray for white fly on my citrus trees? I have never had this problem before until now (though many friends locally have had this for the past 3 years). I was told you can use a cap (from the bottle) full of sugar soap to a bucket of water as a spray – is this worth trying?

Your help with my problem would be appreciated.

PS Thank you for your feedback re the pruning of my large Jacaranda tree.

Hi Ronnie, No problem. Recommendation for white fly on citrus is Enspray Oil. White fly have an extremely quick life cycle so will require 2-3 sprays relatively quickly after each other (over 14 days). General spray programme for citrus is spray alternately every 4 weeks with Free Flow Copper then Enspray Oil in the middle. At this time of the year, give them a treat with an organic liquid fertiliser (compost tea, fish fertiliser or seaweed fertiliser) this way your citrus should always be clean of fungus and insects. All sprays mentioned are BioGrow certified so safe to use on edibles but don’t spray during hot sunny days.

Thanks the Palmers Team
