How Can I Get Rid of White Flies in the Garden?

How do I get rid of white flies? I have them in prodigious numbers every year. I spray with dormant oil every month and I've tried using K-Neem which didn't seem to do anything at all. I also have spider mites on my red bud tree that I spray for, but never get rid of. Thanks.

Mix one cup of "sour" milk in a gallon of water. Be sure to spray the underside of the leaves.

This hint from Jerry Baker, Master Gardener.

Here is another hint I saw on TV: Hit the plant/tree with a stream of hot water for 30 seconds. (The man used a hose). Looked like it worked. I don't have a hot water line outside though. Good luck. GG Vi
