    Goddamn gnats keep coming out of the soil! Started hanging yellow strips then fogged my room then most recently I have twice added GoGnat to my reservoir and that was supposed to kill the larvae in the soil but it didn't. If anyone has used this before could you help me? I added it to my res and the shards that look like glass that come in the formula get stuck in my ebb and flow filter, I thought this was normal should I remove my filter and try again? Any other gnat remedies for soilless.

    I use SPINOSAD or MONTERAY GARDEN INSECT SPRAY.

    This is great on all pests those in the medium and those on the plant.

    You make it up as a spray and spray your medium or plants with it or even both.

    This will kill any larvae in your medium.

    Also something else which i use that i always tell people about is HOT SHOTS NO PEST STRIPS. these kill anything that manage to get into your grow room but they have no effect on anything in the medium this is where the SPINOSAD comes into play.

    I live in the UK and pay more for shipping on these prodcuts than they actually cost as they are only available in the US,

    But they work great!!!!

    Cedar shavings, You can buy them at most plant stores.
    They have been soaked in cedar oil for more potency. Like 6 bucks for a big jar.
    Pour on the soil and don't get skimpy with the shit. Its like a giant salt shaker. Just cover the soil with the shavings.
    The gnats have a very small window of life. But they lay hundreds of eggs in the soil. The flying ones will die soon enough.
    The cedar is like poison to the eggs. Kills them dead. It worked for me.
