It's really easy to find out if bugs are fungus gnats. Mix gnatrol at 1 tablespoon/ gallon, thoroughly wet the top of the soil. Wait 10 days. If that doesn't make them really, really scarce then it's not fungus gnats.

They're endemic to my grow because they come in on homemade compost & some worm castings. I'll never get rid of them entirely but just that annihilates all but a few. I let them get away from me once a few years back & even went thru the once a week for 3 weeks routine to bring them under control but they still came back eventually. When I start to see more than a few on my fly strips I just hit 'em once & it's over for months.

Gnatrol just works.

Yes... I been using about 1.5" GnatNix on top of coco, in smartpots for over a year.

I use compressed brick coco that i hydrate with 140°F water to eliminate any freeloaders.

For me, it is just another form of control. It does not solve an infestation. The gnats actually hatch in the GnatNix layer. However, he GnatNix layer does definitely slow the gnats down.

Currently, my anti-gnat regimen is to use the layer of gnatnix. And, also spray the surface with a spray bottle filled with 11 ml/l Azamax/water a couple times a week. As mentioned, this does not eliminate my gnat tribe... just keeps them under control.

Here is a video of some I have a problem with . I think they are root aphids . I have controlled them with a bleach solution. Recommended during veg.

Been battling both in my veggie garden. I ended up using diluted hydrogen peroxide. Poured some in the soil and used the rest as a foliar spray. Killed most on contact and the rest fell to the soil. Ended up dusting the soil with DE afterwards. Should take care of them. Gonna use the water, soap and cayenne mix from here on out to control them better. Can't believe how bad our infestation got.

At this point in worried of seeing anything come up in my tent.

First Post ever, but ive read this thread at least a half dozen times, many more just like it

To F. Dupp, why did you switch from Evergreen 60-6 to the Riptide? Besides it being water based, wouldnt you think that 60% PBO is what made it a superior product? That synergistic effect of PBOs is what makes them great, and perhaps bad at the same time. Politics at this point.

Ive been fighting these fuckers for a while now: IMID in veg, soon to add Kontos, then alternating contact killers like Spectracide. But most importantly, that Evergreen 60-6. Least harmful to plant, good for everyday use if need be.

Do you find Riptide just as beneficial as the Evergreen? I may have missed a post, but it seems like you had more success some years ago with the Evergreen.

I appreciate the help of evryone in this thread.

Even Retro.

nematodes from amazon solved them for me.
