Any tips out there on how to mitigate a white fly problem on my chili peppers? I have habanero and scorpion peppers growing in my aquaponics system but the white flies are making them really sick. Just wondering if there are any methods that will not harm the system and the fish.

Hi Victor

Short term use Sticky Yellow insect traps

You can reduce numbers very easy with a vacuum cleaner put a tee piece and tap on the hose so you can have gentle suction

For the traps look for something like this

Or you can make them out of anything "search how to"

I have "Habitat that ive built" that spiders and small lizards live in under my growbeds I rarely have any bug trouble these days.

The predators work all night for you for free

They certainly work well, but unfortunately catch the good bugs as well. Good bugs like lacewings eat white flies.

Vacuuming them up after disturbing works well, but you have to do it frequently.
