G'day, Ozstoners.

Opened the tent this arvo and what seemed like thousands of tiny black flies took of in every direction.
They havn't come back in any great number since.
I also noticed a bit of mouldy/algae water in the corner of the tent.

Has anyone else had anything like this happen to 'em?
Would be good to know what these things are for future reference.

Poice.

Hey fish, don't worry too much bout the algae, u probably just got a small water leak somewhere, but u need to get the scarid fly under control or they'l decimate ur root system. I recommend alstystin , some sort of neem or scarid 10, good luck..devil

When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength.
Give thanks for your food and the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks,
The fault lies in yourself.




Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

Man has a poor understanding of life. He mistakes knowledge for wisdom. He tries to unveil the holy secrets of our Father, the Great Spirit.

He attempts to impose his laws and ways on Mother Earth.
Even though he, himself, is a part of nature, he chooses to disregard, and ignore it, for the sake of his own immediate gain.
But the laws of nature are far stronger than those of mankind…

Yeah it's soil. and I have noticed them flyin' out of the soil. F@cK! I have white oil spray on me atm.
Plan of attack would be to spray the soil with some sort of anti-pestilence is what i've gathered so far..!?

You will need to do a soil drench with an effective pesticide to kill those root munchin larvae, white oil won't get u far..

So the fungus gnat larvae are the ones who devour the root system, not the fully grown gnats themselves
