Sorry, but Malathion at spray strength will kill sciarid flies and
arvae[ for the latter water into compost] they can be a problem for me as I
grow carnivorous plants and they love the damp/wet peaty compost or you can
fumigate glasshouses with nicotine, HCH or dichlorvos if available.


>I don't think malathion is effective on the larvae.  I may be wrong.
