Here, in Malibu, we are graced with mellow weather and mild winters.
While this is good for us, it is not good for certain plants that need cold winters to kill off certain pests. One of these pests is the white fly. If you happen to have a hibiscus plant, then you know what I am talking about. This winter was not cold enough or long enough to kill off any over wintering white flies, so now you will see an early appearance of them on many of the plants that get white fly infestation.
