  2. Looks like you have white flys bud. Go get some Insecticide Soap...Lowes or Home Depot. Look for Organic ones with Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids as the ingredient. Very safe on plants. You can get Fox Farms Don't Bug me as well. That works very well. Also hang some fly strips up.

    Deal with the issue fast now that you have noticed. They multiply like crazy.

  3. thanks for the feedback! I woke up today and they do multiply like crazy... will get on it immediately.

    Any risk for the plant? where are those bugs going to attack?

  4. The gnats in flying form are harmless. There babies eat plant matter which means roots but they don't go deep . The adults suck on the bottom of the leaves so I guess if you had like 10,000 of them in your grow room some damage could be done.
  5. Put up some yellow pest stickys around the plants.
    Consider getting a Neem oil spray.

    Thats for above ground.

    Keep an eye on the medium for larvae.
