Can Whitefly Cause Tomato Leaf Curl – Remedy?
I have a lush roma tomato bush in a large pot - lots of tomatoes still on - have picked about 12 ripe ones. In full sun and watered twice a day with can. Now the leaves are rolling towards the centre from the side of the leaf. I've also noticed whiteflies for days. Can they puncture tiny holes in tomatoes? What treatment can I use to save the rest of the crop? Thanks.

Neem oil will take care of the whiteflies and most any other insect pest. The tiny puncture may also be indicitive of pinworms.
