Bad Onions!

Done with planting onions for a couple years.This is the 2nd year for the onion fly.
I usually plant early as possible in March but last year got the onion fly.
Tried late this year as they said later they have run their cycle.Planted 3 weeks ago and noticed tonite those bad white dots on the leaves.Pulled them and burned them!
Done with onions for a couple years!Guess I'll be buying them at the store.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Haven't seen those things yet in my garden. I have white Spanish and Stuttgart yellow onions doing nice.

Look on the onion leaf for a series of white dots.That is where the eggs were laid.

I'm in 5B too and took a year off planting onions due to onion flies as well. Lancaster county was ground zero for a serious onion fly problem last year.

Yellow sticky cards are likely your only hope unless you try floating row covers or pesticides.
