    These will go after larva. I have an order on the way with nems on the way..

    Note I sprayed down my area three days in a row with that pepper spray and I have not seen a lot of them or landing on the traps. Pepper spraY is the truth...

    Those Pred soil mites , like Rove beetles will control the flies but will not stop a infestation ,nematodes will stop the life cycle of a bad infestation ,
    Soil Pred mites ,rove beetles keep the fungus flies from getting a foothold on your pots IF U start with them when u 1st up pot in new soil

    Im not sure where you get your predator mites from or which brand but kopperts cucumeries mince through broadmites and Gnats. As I said I have neems on the way and also scmitus also clean the soil. Depending where you live only certain predators are available.

    Scmitus will stop the infestation as they live in the soil and only feed on larva and early stages of the gnat.

    Get quality sticky traps.
    I have all these products and they are working. This also goes into your daily ipm methods. I don't spray my plants with all natural oragnic material as shown a page prior.

    Mosquito dunks (BT) are not working for me either.

    How long do you let the dunks sit in your water before watering?
    I've been letting it sit for 48 hours before doing a soil drench.

    Dunks seem to have not been working as well as a few months ago. I've used them with effect for years. Watering Neem 5hrough seems quite effective if this grower does it every 2 weeks or so. Plants really seem to enjoy it. 1000 Fungus Gnats don't make me sweat like 1 Spider Mite.

    Does Beauveria bassiana work for gnats or is it just mites and whitefly?
