They seem particularly thick this year & are laying eggs on the underde of leaves. Any ideas on controling them?

Living in Ajijic, I am confused by what you mean by white flies. I don't think you mean bobos because I don't think they lay eggs under leaves. How big are these white flies?

If they're real small, about the size of aphids or bobos I have seen some of those. I didn't like them, so I took a cutting that had these flies on it to the local garden shop, and the person there gave me the type of poison necessary to kill the little buggers. Sadly because I'm in the states for a few more days, I can't run out and check what the product is. What I do know is that I no longer have these flies.
