Yellow sticky trap for fungus gnats









FUNGUS GNATS


PLANT DAMAGE
These
gnats infest the growing medium and their larvae eat the plants roots. Plants loose vigor and the leaves turn pale, but the plants won't actually die.

INSECT APPEARANCE
Tiny grey or black flies with long legs and antennae, flying aimlessly around your plants. You will also find them in the growing medium, and possibly even swarming around your nutrient vat. Fungus gnats like damp, decaying organic matter.

TREATING LIGHT INFESTATION
You can try sucking up many of the annoying little buggars with a vacumm nozzle, but this is not a permanent solution; try  Sticky Traps Yellow, too.

BIOLOGICAL WARFARE
Parasitic nematodes or predatory mites

CHEMICAL WARFARE
Drench the medium with insecticidal soap or Neem Oil.
Use goGnats  specifically to treat fungus gnats, it can be added to the reservoir; follow directions carefully.
