These white winged bugs on my curry leaf plant has mostly destroyed the plant. They are always on the new growths, stop it from growing and then all the other leaves become old and fall off. Im really worried and ned to know the cause and organice cures for this. This has happened twice to 2 of my curry leaf plants. I will post pics asap.

selwyn,

I think at the moment, you onlyhave larvae. if you manually destroy them, they wont grow into adults and multiply. did neem oil help?

Well…I managed to save the plant by spraying Neem oil every evening, everyday till the pests disappeared. They have now gone, but return as soon as I stop the spraying. So I continue every alternate day and the plant is growing healthy. Ill post pics as soon as I click some.

Thanks.

Great! They are whiteflies. you can also hang sticky yellow traps to catch hold of them. May be you already tried.
