I have been growing some herbs on my windowsill. Lately I've noticed an infestation of white flies that seem particularily attracted to my sage, oregano and thyme, but not my chives and rosemary. I need to get this under control fast before they get to my orchids.

For obvious reasons, I'm looking for a natural way to eliminate them once and for all. I've tried a mild soap solution (not quite natural, I know) but they came right back.

Thoughts? Solutions?

Thanks.

A friend of mine sent me the following recipe;

1 onion
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp oil
5 cloves garlic

Blend together with a bit of water and let stand overnight. Strain and dilute with water.

This can be used weekly as a spray.

I haven't tried it yet; will keep you posted.
