Fungus Gnats & Cannabis - How to Identify & Get Rid of It Quickly!
Get one of those mosquito pucks, put it in you water can, leave it overnight and water all your plants. The bacteria will kill the larvaeHello I recently noticed these little black flys flying around my plants that look like fruit flys I now know they are fungus gnats I read the main cause of fungus gnats is over watering and a wet medium, my medium is coco I thort you wer ment to water every day if not multiple times a day with coco and high frequency fertigation and what not so how do I get rid of the gnats if my medium it constantly wet and prevent them from coming back once I finally get rid of them, I went and aquired a yellow sticky trap and 200ml bottle of hydrogen peroxide but not shure how much to mix with water or if I need to ph the water im mixing it with I have read this will kill the lave as this is what I'm worried most about they feed on the small hairs on your roots and stunt growth I think it was and umong other things not good wer the actual flying gnats I'm hoping the yellow traps will do the trick any help would be much appreciated thank you.
Wow that was an interesting read I never heard of nematodes but will definatly look in to it a bit more haha those nematodes reminded me of the venom movie haha verry interesting but thanksI've used beneficial nematodes for about a year now and have no bugs what so ever...............
Copied from; Use Beneficial Nematodes to Combat Insect Pests | Gardener's Path
Nematodes are so safe that the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) waived them from needing to be a registered product for pest management, because they occur naturally and do not demand any kind of genetic modification or manipulation.
They are an amazing alternative to conventional pesticides, and they are safe for use around your kids, your pets, and the beneficial insects in your garden like earthworms and ladybugs.
The effects of nematode applications occur over time rather than setting in immediately. The first host insects will begin to die within 36-48 hours.
Once they begin feeding and mature, the nematodes will begin reproducing. They will continue to hunt and stay active in your garden, unless they run out of food or experience a temperature interruption.
Yep. A bit more reading made me go back for more reading. There are some gardening sites that will recommend watering with Bt as one way to go which is what I remember from before. You are right, though, use Bti since it is specifically meant for gnats and mosquitoes.It needs to be BTI not just BT.
BT is for caterpillars, BTI is for skeeters and fungus gnats.
@Silverfox125 that's a good site that's my go to when I get stuck with anything and they got a good section on how to diagnose sick plants, it's help me more times than not that's the forum I was on before I discoverd 420 Mag!!! Peace out growmies
