Have folks been successful using any biocontrol agents such as bacteria
(Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis), fingers (Homo sapien), mites
(Hypoaspis miles) or nematodes (Steinernema feltiae) to reduce fungus
gnat populations in  Arabidopsis forests?  I would be interested in
application/management schedules, other biocontrols, and comparisons of
effectiveness.  I will post a summary of responses.
