Question From: MASSACHUSETTS
Q: Isn't there a homemade recipe containing baking soda that will kill white flies?
Here's a recipe I found on the internet. Never used it so I can't vouch for it. I would test it on an a leaf or two of any plant you choose to use it on for possible leaf burn or other damage. You will probably need to repeat the application several times. Good Luck and Happy Yardening, Nancy. Try making your own insecticidal soap *with* a recipe of one gallon water, 2 t *baking soda*, 2 t dish detergent, and 2 t white vinegar. Spray the pest treatment under the leaves of your plants where the *white fly* eggs, scale and adults reside.
