Fungus gnat predator mites !
Posted 17 January 2020 - 02:06 AM
Thought I’d give some info back to the group since I’m always asking questions and not the best grower so can’t give a lot back to the community
I’ve been using Bugs For Bugs To obtain Californicus predator mites for the control / prevention of spider mites each grow ....
Just got an email which they’ve now researched and released to the public for mites that control fungus gnats
Check it out if ya interested

Don't the bugs just die out if they don't have anything to eat?
so when you reckon good timing is to use them frank
this from bug for bugs website about hypoaspis miles
It is always good to establish beneficial insects and mites early before pest problems develop. Start your release program at (or preferably before) the first
hint of fungus gnats. Close monitoring is advised to determine frequency and numbers for follow up releases if required.
