swarms of white flies came into garden with compost

October 8, 2019

Could use some advice. My yard helpers put down my fall top dressing of compost day before yesterday. What I thought were gnats that came with that 4 yds. morphed into white flies. There are clouds of them. Swarming around rose and perennials.Too late for purchasing more ladybugs and rather not harm any beneficials left in my garden or bees and butterflies. I read Insecticidal Soap but that seems too mild for such a heavy infestation. Have some strong stuff but hate to use. Does anyone know if Avid or Florimite helps with white fly. I know those products do not harm bees etc. i need some “big guns” not harmful to the good guys.
