Get a tuna can fill it 50/50 with apple cider vinegar and water with a couple drops of dish liquid., stick it on top of your soil without spilling it. Get some sticky traps., probably shipped soil contaminated with fungas gnat larvae…:sunglasses:


I will try that. Thank You so much

Unfortunately this did not work so well.Sure it got rid of a few in the fly trap but that’s it.In spite of it the plants are doing great! I really need to rid these pests before moving to the next tent.They are staying in the soil. Can anyone help?

Azamax to the soil and @Mrb53004 no-mo-mold. Cover top inch of soil with garden sand or fine rock. Happy growing!

First thing, make sure you’re allowing the soil to dry back a bit between waterings. They can be an indication that your RH is staying too high.

A couple other options I’ve heard of but not yet tried:

  • Top dressing with neem seed meal
  • Using beneficial predator nematodes

You can try to put a layer of sand, get some BT, use D.E. make sure to wear a mask so you dont inhale any. Plenty of other options as well.:sunglasses:, make sure not to overwater., remove the top inch of soil or at least till it around…

BT is bacteria that is specifically targets certain problems (mold, insects) and doesn’t harm the beneficials
