Help me get fungus knatts

These things are in my grow room and my plants are budding

Try placing a cup of apple cider vineger in the corner, attracts and kills them when they fly into it.


I think you meet Gants

Take a potatoe and slice it up and place it on the soil around the plant. They are attracted to it and once you get a bunch of them throw the potatoe away and replace with another slice.
Mean while read this ok

Fungus Gnats

Fungus gnats like to feed on roots of the plants and organic matter. Adults
and larvae live in moist, shady areas. The adults lay there eggs on top of
the soil, near the base of the stem and takes about 4 days to hatch. The
larvae will start by eating the root hairs of the plant then working their
way up the plant, Fungus gnats like to eat organic matter so they will be
stealing away nutrients from your plants, so its best to get rid of them
completely. [color=red. Plants growing in rock wool are more prone to getting
a more severe infestation than plants growing in soil. If your plants are
affected during late flowering or close to harvest, please try to use the
safest means of control to be safe to your health.[/color]

[color=red]Prevent and Control

Prevent indoor entry of gnats by making sure there is no open windows open
without screens on. Aug is a bad time for them as they are worst that time
of the year.

Put sticky traps on the soil surface to trap the gnats

Put potato slices on the surface of the soil. The larvae like it and will
be drawn to it… After about 4 to 5 days, remove the potato slices with the
larvae. To get rid of them you can do a lot of things like either use a NO
pest strip, neem oil or putting sand on the surface of the soil will suffocate
the eggs and get rid of them as well. Tobacco juice kills them, and works well
for re-occurrences!

They can be in or on the soil and can fly. In order to get rid of them you
can use neem oil, sand or perlite on the surface again kills them, and no pest
strips catch the ones that fly. A chemical product called Zone works very well
and is very powerful and works well in Hydroponics/Aeroponics!
