I had a big whitefly problem on my brassicas last year mid season which caused my brocolli and cabbages to fail. Eventhough they went with winter, over the hot spell in the last few weeks they have returned in my compost bins. I have not planted out yet and am loathed to do so with such a whitefly infestation. How do i kill the whitefly off in the compost bin without contaminating it too excessively with pesticides? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Could you put all the top rubbish from your compost into your council recyling bin, and spray your veg with provado bugkiller which is ok on veg. julien
