I have found Neem to be quite a boon at keeping my whiteflies under control 
in my garden.  My hanging fuschia's were plaqued.


<< I've had a terrible time with white flies this year, worst than I've had
in several years. Along the lines you are mentioning, I found the best
way to keep them under control is with strong bursts of water on the
underside leaves of the plant.  I almost lost some lantana to white
flies, but by Spraying the undersides of the leaves withs strong jets of
water, 3 or 4 times a week, I was able to rescue them and bring them
back to good health. >>
