I WON!!! atleast for now
    #3225906 - 10/07/04 02:42 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I have beat the fungus gnats!! I think it took many prayers to the shroom gods and a bottle of Bioganic Organic Insect Control purchased from Lowes. I have healthy pins forming every where. i was about to throw it out but when i opened the rubbermaid i found no flies or gnats but pins. The pinset is uneven but im not complaining. If i still smoked , i would roast a blunt but im tryin to be clean again.

Why are fungus gnats bad, exactly? Spread contams?

I have a feeling I may have problem with fungus gnats....... there are quite a few in the house from all the .. house plants. :wink:

I suppose I could put a pest strip in my chamber.

they're bad becuase yes, they spread contams.  Also, if you have fungus gnats, or phorid flies, they will lay eggs in your casings, eat your myc, and turn into a bigger problem as time goes on.

Fungus gnats eat your shrooms and mycelium, spread contamination... They will make your shrooms liquify like your trippin..lol..if oyu have a Lowes or Home Depot near by, i would look into Bioganic Organic Insect Control, it says on the bottle that it may be used up to the day of harvest so im guessing it is pretty safe stuff. It is used on plants, vegetables, fruits and safe around children and pets. Ill be the first one to test out the product from this batch to see if i get sick. Im only probably going to need only half an eight to trip. So ill hopefully post again when i have eaten these shrooms.

Or use bug zapper. It could double for a light source.
