Plastic pots veg coco gnats in drain holes

Hi I guess it maybe a repeat I’ve question on ICMAG but I figured I would ask what is the best way to restrict fungus gnats coming in and out of the drain holes on plastic pots. I rarely ever see them on top of the medium, but the bottom is obviously stats more moist and I believe that is where they go to lay there eggs in the bottom thru the drain holes. What preventative measures can I take?

If you only have a few plants stick a little very fine steel wool in the drain holes. The little so and so get shredded and that will make you happy. Otherwise the crumbled up Mosquito Dunks work great. You can get the dunks at the big box stores like Lowes or Home Depot.

How do you think it would work if I mixed it in my big bin of coco? Or better to top dress?

Gnatrol or another Bti product.

Why screw around with bandaids? Kill them.

How much gnatrol do you use? Enough for run off?

I use air pots which have holes all over and I cover them with pantyhose.
