Hi Joe ,I once had gnats or what I think were gnats.I just stopped watering
the plants as much -drying out the soil before watering.I would let them get
to the point were they would start showing signs of not enough water.
When I did water them.I would give them just enough to come back , also I
found injecting water with a syringe a few inches below the soil worked
better than the plants that I just poured small amounts of water on.Both
methods did not hurt the plants other than losing a few leaves but it did
get rid of the problem.
I try not to use any type of pesticide of chemical other than fertilizer on
Don't worry about what people call crossposting,some people just need
something to complain about.
