Fungus gnats in potted plants
Can anyone help me with this problem. I sent an email last week explaining my problem with bugs in my hoseplant soil. Briefly, I’m talking about indoor potted plants. When I re-potted the plants this summer, shortly afterward I started noticing gnats in my house. I soon discovered they were coming from the soil in my plants. (there was a gray, fuzzy covering on parts of the soil, and then small mushrooms (?). When I used the yellow gnat sticks, they were covered in a day! I’ve used a very strong poison which is supposed to kill the larvae, I’ve re-potted the plants, using new pots, new name brand soil, washed off the plants and root system, you name it I’ve done it. Thing were OK for a while. Now one of my plants is infested again!. I know I didn’t overwater – being very cautious because of the fungus thing! If I see one more gnat, I’m going to move out, or drop kick the plant out the door. (the plant seems to be doing quite well in spite of it all). Please help me!!! If any of your products would help, please advise me. The sooner the better. Thanks!!!! Judy Brown
