      Thankfully I now grow in Titan Ebb&Grow systems and use GnatNix on the top of my coco so i don't have to mess with the little bastards any more. When I grew with rockwool cubes I only got rid of the gnats by using Raid.

          I agree. I tried the mosquito dunks too. Gnat Nix does work. Until the adults die out you will have some flying around but the larvae in your planters will die as they crawl up through the GnatNix. Be sure to put atleast 1 inch layer on top of your soil or coco coir. Also, realize that if the gnats/fruit flies can easily get into your grow rooms from outside then you will keep seeing them.

            The concentration is weak. You have to use a ridiculous amount.

            Gnatrol wins again.

              The great thing about GnatNix is it isn't a pesticide. 1 application on the top of the medium at the beginning of the grow and it stays there working for the whole grow. I suppose if I couldn't get rid of the flying adults then I would spray the plants with something but remember the bug spray will likely show up in the lab test.

                It's Gnatrol. Bti. As harmless as they come.

                It isn't systemic nor is it applied with a sprayer. It also isn't a half ass solution like most the crap recommended here.

                Did you troll me because you want this Dipshit Know Nothing crown?

                Don't worry. People know.

                  The gnatrol.com guy on ebay was gouging too badly, so I finally broke down and ordered my own 16 pound bucket of Gnatrol for just under $400 shipped. What a great decision. Myself and a few friends will be set for 2 years at $26 per pound. The guy on ebay wants $56 per pound.

                  mosquito dunks didn't work too well for me, took a long time to mash them up with pliers and then even at high doses I still had lots of gnats. Better to suck it up & buy Gnatrol. Best price was from this place in Colorado:

                  also if you've got a severe infestation, make sure to water with Gnatrol every 2-3 days, it only stays active in the soil for 2 days so they'll start breeding up again if you wait for the soil to dry out longer than 2-3 days.

                    ??? No. I don't Troll anyone. I am here to learn and help others with advice from what I have experienced. After all, real growing experience comes from real growing history.

                    You can keep the "Dipshit Know Nothing Crown". It's yours and I figure you earned it.

                      Was shopping around, comparing prices and reviews and stumbled upon the same recommendation over and over. Supposedly it is very concentrated Bti, and very inexpensive. Also besides being found online, it is often stocked at hardware stores.

                      Microbelift BMC

                      The dosage is so tiny, it can be hard to measure. Although I was told by someone who contacted the manufacturer that over dosing will not be harmful, nor will it be more effective, just waste the product a little. At the price though, seems non factor.

                      Will try to remember to post with my actual results, hopefully in the next week or so.

                        Hello all,
                        Great thread.
                        Just ordered some on eBay for delivery on Friday.
                        Been using neem seed meal in the every mix but recently the gnats have gone nuts. I have the yellow white fly traps in the cabinet and lately their numbers exploded.
                        Gonna try the 1/4 piece ground up per pot.
                        Hoping to save my Venom OG and Sour Kosher from the beasts.
                        Let you know how it goes.

                            Thank you lolagirl

                            Update ;
                            I got the dunks, powdered two in a mortar and pestle, sprinkled a light dusting on the soil of my girls in the flower room, and my potted lady in the propagation box.
                            Next I mixed up some soil along with some dunks. It has been a couple of weeks since I started with the dunks and the quantity of gnats appears to be reducing. I plan to replace my yellow sticky traps in a few days to see how it is working.

                            So far so good.

                              safe your money dont buy this mosquito duks garbage!

                              sorrry but the threadstarters advice made me mad some time ago.

                              just want say i was very dissapointed about the results. i ordered a big package mosquito bits and also this donut style dunks spend arround 80€ total so allmost 100usd.

                              i sprinkled the bits around the plants. i put a dunk in a womensock(nylon) and hang it into the resorvoir..let it there at least 1 week.. no effect at all. maybe the plants even didnt like it..not shure but i got a feeling it wasnt the best idea..what a waste of time and money. also it was hard to get it in europe. i ordered from u.s.a.

                              so..useing nematodes is working nice i tried it several times..the problem is u shouldnt use it with filters/automatic drip feed system.. so its only good for hand feeding..

                              i prefer useing bacillus thuringiensis israelensis

                              how much grams gnatrol u use per gallon? can u overdose it? no right?

                              can u reproduce the bacteria?
