My pitched battle with fungus gnats
    #3249450 - 10/12/04 11:25 PM (13 years, 8 days ago)

Well, I tossed a couple of casings as they were on their 4th flush and either done or the gnats had gotten them. I had several adults flying around, and I'm sure plenty of larvae.
Anywhoo, so I cleared out my fruiting chamber, dunked the last casing in peroxide water for a day. Isolated it for another two days. Now it's back in the chamber (which has been cleared of gnats since there's no food) and I've put a hanging fly strip in there. It appears my casing is colonizing again. Frankly, I'm surprised at this. Just patched it. Hope to see some fruits. What a bonus! Okay. Hope this might help someone.

Ah I hate fungas gnats. They are all over my salvia divinorum plant and won't go away. I hope they don't fly over to my mushrooms only a couple rooms away. We need to unite and kill all the fungas gnats.

I agree.  I've heard Tansy works.  Or dried coffee grounds.  But these sort of seem like wives' tales.  Hmmm.  Just wish I could find that pixie that vacuums 'em all up like that other poster wuz talkin' 'bout. 

I HATE GNATS! :razz:  They're worse than rabbits for breeding, and not nearly so cute.

dried coffee probably wont do anything except mess with the ph of the soil, some outdoor plants like it, not good to add too much organic stuff to indoor soil, draws bugs and critters, anyway to kill the gnats you can use a fan to disturb the flight of the gnats, dropping the temp can slow them while you figure out how to poison them. diatomacious earth( hort. grade not pool grade) in your soil will kill them, it shreds them up. also if a few drops of dawn dish soap in water will scorch them, the degreasing action kills bugs in soil, test a small amount first, and i never use that on plants im going to eat or smoke, probably wouldnt hurt though. and neem oil will kill bugs in soil and on leaves and its supposed to be safe.
