      yes indifferent, that is the bacillus in them that kills the fungus gnat.

      The product info will not tell ya'll that this works on fungus gnats however. There is just not much info out there on this subject.

      It does work on fungus gnats though. AND my Grow is 100% Mosquito free too... lol

        Hi Lolagal, I have tried soo many things to try to get on top of these little bastids, including at least two products containing the same bacteria, but they didn't work.

        We don't have mosquito dunks in Oz and I've heard similar reports from others so I'll have to import some, can you please tell me which brand you used so I don't waste any more time & money?

        Thanks.

          Here's one I heard today from another grower at work (who gave me gnats with some clones). He said some ladybugs got in his growroom and and ate the gnats, including the dead bodies stuck in the buds. This is hearsay, I can't say about ladybugs because I've never seen it for myself, but it may be worth a try. Sometimes ladybugs can be found for sale at garden centers. I can recommend the Summit Mosquito Dunks for those who can find them- I've avoided a similar product that was shaped like small black fish because it was all chemical, don't know the name.

            Buy the brand of dunks shown in post by SNS stealth. THose are the ones I use.

            Hope this info saves some seeds and crops.

              How (if any) should these be treated differently in a recirculating hydroton bucket setup? I'm guessing breaking them up and sprinkling on top would work fine, but just wanted to ask for clarification. Thanks!

                One dunk treats like 10,000 gallons or some ungodly amount of water.

                I don't do hydro, but I am sure it would work the same. Maybe put a little piece in the reservoir and let it hang out in the water?

                    They eat root hairs, and if bad enough, they will plumb eat a seed before it can grow. Plus they can cause stunting of the plant.

                          funny how Jah Jah provides...
                          i noticed a significant infestation just the other day, i thought they were harmless, but my mentor school'd me on the root damage they can do, i open icmag today, and a solution.
                          I love this place, thanks gypsy and all the people big and small who make this such a valuable resource for growers.
                          watch out gnat, here comes the dunks.

                            The Dunks work great! They don't kill off the adults though! In about 3-4 weeks though, you won't see any more adults. It takes time to eradicate them.

                            The Dunks break the breeding cycle by killing off the grubs in the roots.

                            Adults can be zapped with a little pyrethrin spray in the air. Also yellow sticky fly paper is good to catch adults.

                            But ONLY using dunks, my grow was fungus gnat free in 3-4 weeks. AND it has stayed FREE of gnats for a year, by adding a little dunk to new soil as it is brought in.

                              Gnatrol = mosquito dunks.
