die fungus Gnats Die!

I too, wondered how best to use the Dunk when I got it.

I looked online... no information available anywhere.

At first I crumbled some Dunk and soaked it in a gallon of water. I figured this would do the job. Some Dunk fell on top of the soil in the pot and I left it there. Those were the first to be gnat free.

Then I figured out that I was doing this the hard way.

Since Dunk does not mind being dried out in between waterings, I decided to sprinkle on top of the pot.

My research with this product was all I had to go on.

Sprinkling on top of the pot worked GREAT! No more bothering with soaking in water for me!

Just water the Dunk in after applying, and ALL WILL BE FINE!

If this don't work I will give you all your money back! hahahahahaha

I am 110% certain this is a CURE. In a couple weeks you will have no more FUNGUS GNATS! EVER AGAIN!!!!

However, if you forget and bring in some new soil and forget to treat it! They will be back.

Pre-empt them with adding new DUNK to every new pot of soil you use and NO MORE GNATS!

I've used these with great success over the years. I crumble into the soil, and keep one floating in a 5 gal bucket that i use to water. I have been gnat-free for a long time, but recently got infested from some gift clones ( must have been Trojan Horse strain). My immediate response to seeing the gnats was to get Mosquito Dunks, cuz I KNOW they work!

there are a number of BT products you could use if you can;t find the dunks.

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.
