What the Hell am I suppose to Do about Gnats???
    #11961243 - 02/04/10 01:44 PM (8 years, 6 months ago)

I'm guessing i never had this problem before because only recently have I been using compost... But what the hell do I do to kill the gnats and salvage my casing?

Also, pasteurize your casing better next time.

Anything with B.T. in it will kill them- I just ordered some Go-gnats for my ganja garden. You can also use mosquito dunks soaked in water and use as a spray.  I guess you probably dont want to add to much extra water though. 

To kill adult gnats get some yellow sticky traps.  The larvae are little maggots that live in the soil.  they eat plant roots and decaying organic matter but not sure if they will harm shrooms.

good luck!

Not true, mushrooms I've collected from the wild have been completely infested with flies, which I didn't realize until I had take them home and maggots and flies started crawling out of them.  If they're still around when you harvest, I would be extremely worried.

put a cup of vinegar around them... they fly into it and get stuck. It's what I do when they get into my house. :oldman:

i like the cup of vinegar and fly paper ideas....

i don't think the fly eggs are much of a problem, the mushrooms grow pretty well. they are annoying and the more i spray the casing the more of them i get, thanx for the help everyone
