Pesticide spraying is problematic for white flies because the generation time is so short they rapidly become resistant. Palm flowers are magnets for bees. In addition it probably won't help much because it is practically certain all your neighbor's trees have the same thing. They will come right back.

Take a piece of leaf with live larvae and adults to your neighborhood ag extension, or university biology department. They can probably advise as to predator insects to release. That is a much better approach with a very large outbreak like this. The predators may remain as a viable population in your area because the white flies are probably never going to be eliminated completely.

Lady bugs and lacewing larvae are good predators of whitefly. I release lady bugs and, usually set out the little paper bags of lacewing eggs, every spring to clean up my plants. The lady bugs usually lay eggs before flying away but this year, they stayed on my plants for some time, first.

DC- consider a concentrated azadirachtin product like Azamax instead of neem oil.
