Wow, Google just told me they lay eggs ,,always thought it was like flies laying maggots,,,but yeah, I've pulled apart a cube to find heaps of the little mini magot looking things in there where the base of the stem starts and amongst the roots ,,,

Little bastards get into everything, at first I thought it may have just been a coco thing and thought that maybe the reason why lots of people don't like coco so much.

Well they - gnats do like coco that's for sure ,,I've always thought that the green shit that often grows on the top of the cubes attracts the gnats ,,

Could be wrong ,,.

They are attracted to moisture in the soil.

I used to grow indoors about 20 years ago and I'll be buggered if I can remember ever having a problem with them back then. Maybe I just didn't know what to look for.

Yes I did read that so I was trying to let the top bit of coco dry out and to be honest I believe when I was doing that I saw less numbers of the bastards.

You see less because they go deeper with the moisture. As long as they not in plague proportions they are not really a problem. Ive had em ever since i started growing.
I knew if i used soil inside ide have em an yep they are there. I just use sticky traps and water and spray with neem. If you mount an all out assault ya might stop em but probably not.
