This is my second year with a year-round garden and last year I boasted about my fabulous chard, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, and beets. This year, everything is growing healthy again, but I just noticed a tiny white insect---white flies?- all over one of my lettuce plants. Upon closer examination, they are also on other heads, and in a separate box I discovered dust like eggs on the veins of the leaves. Oh my goodness! I examined them under the microscope and yes, they are eggs....but everywhere! I started spraying immediately with soapy water, but I am concerned that it might not be enough. Has anyone had success with praying mantis for something like this? Other suggestions? Thank you for the help!

we have whiteflies here in AZ, however, they disappear when it gets cold. You might want to post a picture here so someone can I'd them. Good luck.
