Got me some gnats, didn't want to miss out on all the fun. never had them before in 30+ yrs
Seen them flying around the last couple of weeks
Tried the "ignore and hope you fuck off treatment" no successes,
half me pots had them, the ones with dirt out of me tomacco garden had none
A couple of days ago I decided they weren't much fun and had to go
Today they are gone,(its only rnd 1) never spent a cent, just annoyed the little stnuc til they were to tired to fly
and squashed the little fuckers with me finger

in case they come back & a good thing to use B4 you get them 

they control the larvae & when done they eat organic matter = become soil composters

When I build me indoor garden beds, I will use a fair bit of soil out of me existing tomacco beds, its full of life,
they will get a gig tho, prevention is the better way
Its was a bit of fun, was a shit cold windy day, a good day inside for slaughtering gnats

I had the buggers very late in a crop once, luckily they didn't pose too much of a problem. Just turned the oscillating fans up on them and had flypaper hanging from the ceiling where it wasn't so breezy.

 

Give 'em heaps, mate. :D

yeah use sticky traps as part of a ipm 

put'em up at the start of the grow & check if anythings stuck to them each day 

 

the other thing to mention is temp at the mo it's cold , gnats not as active 

but as we warm up that will change 

 

keep a lookout for tiny see though worms with a black dot on the head , that be gnat larvae

No sticky strips within a 20mile radius, fuckers
I took the top inch of soil/compost/topdress off and hit them with the fans on flat out, one pushing them up one down
went in every so often and killed some, give the soil a tickle to flush any fuckers out and repeat
Got some slices of potatoes on top of he soil today to encourage the left overs up
Wait and see I suppose, there will be a few floating about
got me seedlings in there as well, fucking fems of course
she'll be right tho, always is lol

terrorists of the plants world fungal gnats can develop into a threat to the livelihood of your plants

they can complete generation life cycles in about 15-20 days most of this time is spent in the root zone

eggs laid will become lavae in 3 days or so, plus 10 days and they are active adults

 

quick effective and safe killer of gnats  is Azamax (harmless to man & beast) mixed with nutes irrigating the medium

also used as a knock down, but down in the root zone is where the lavae feed upon the young root-lets

an Azamax regime that carries over the life -cycle into the next life cycle will often eliminate them completely

 

as a preventative, there is a medium/dirt/dust? which when placed on top of the pots' medium

actually rips the bodies of the adult gnat to shreds when the gnat attempts to burrow down into the medium to lay eggs

the name of this eludes me at the moment ... someone here will chime in and tell us what the feck it is ? ....

there is sharp sand i know, but there is something else ... bugger,  my old memory cells have given up today

 

give them a little respect Pedro,  as they can in bad cases actually overtake the plants health and bring on decline and death if left untreated

 

Edit: this is where positive air pressure within the grow room becomes desirable as opposed to negative pressure (which helps suck the little turds in)

We are stardust, we are golden,
We are billion year old carbon,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

I'm thinking you may be thinking of diatomaceous earth it is good because its shreds there exoskeletons and then they die,its also good for using in chicken coops/pens for controlling mites and parasites
