He latches on to the belly of leaves and sucks their life away!
Chemicals often will not work-they build resistance quick!
So listen while I tell you all about this little trick!
Go get some yellow cardboard, and hang it to a string
one piece for every couple plants where the white-flies do their thing
Mix mineral oil and Vaseline, and coat it good and thick
The yellow paint attracts them, and the Vaseline makes 'em stick!
Each now-and-then take a popsicle stick and scrape off all the chunks
Re-coat and rehang, repeat as before, and save all the bits for the skunks.
When the fly numbers drop, then your trapping should stop so you don't kill off all of your bees
And since the traps are non-toxic, when you throw them away, you can do it however you please!
