Fungus gnats?

Discussion in 'Sick Plants and Problems' started by pun650, Jul 31, 2012.

  1. I believe they're fungus gnats, very small black body with wings. Possible overwatering the last 2 weeks (vacay to Cuba, friends watered them)

    I'm in soil, was wondering if just an inch layer of Sand would kill em, I could transplant. Or just some pesticide.

    Cheap/easy/quick sure fire way?
  2. Neem oil or no pest sticky strips
  3. Neem oil then put an inch of sand on top. Problem solved.:)
  4. Neen tree oil, works wonders on the soil

  5. I have a question

    Will spraying the areas around my cups with neem oil help the problem - or do you really need to spray the soil

    I'm in the seedling stage now, and I have only a few gnats - maybe 2 or 3 that I see at any given time - I want to spray the floor area around the bottom and the side of my cups and NOT the actual soil

    Any advice
  6. You're supposed to spray the leaves with it, very diluted 5ml/gal
  7. yah - it seems like after a few days spraying around the cups had minimal effect and giving the leaves a very light coating actually had a good effect
    thanks pun!
    check out my current grow if you ever get a chance!!
