Help!! Little BLACK GNATS are driving me insane!!!
    #1864084 - 08/29/03 11:51 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Does Anyone know how to stop an infestation of black gnats???
Second flush casings are just starting to pin and there are a few little black gnats in the chamber. Will bleach be able to kill these bastards without making the shrooms inedible, or is it just too late????

:sad: :sad: :sad:

I'm just trying hippies bleach tec dunk, and all the gnats
in one of my casings (which was very gnattyfied) have
vanished over night. So I'm hoping this is a way to erradicate them.

I used a 200 to 1 bleach solution, and dunked for 6 hours.
This i hope will get the eggs and lava of the gnats, but
time will tell. ( Thanks for the idear hippie) At the moment
there are none in the fruiting chambers, but as i only dunked yesterday i have yet to see if this is successful, it has certainly
slowed them down for now, I'll keep you updated.


The methods i used before are sticky traps

Which work well, but will only keep numbers down and
not get all the gnats (thrips).


You can read about the bleach dunks here

Good luck gnat killing :-)

Thanks for the good info, I will try the bleach dunk too. It is that or toss outdoors and that will be the end of a good casing.
