Yes, I am sure mosquito bits are cheaper but the enzyme does way more than just take care of fungus gnats.
When I made the statement I was assuming that the majority of coco growers are using an enzyme. Most enzyme's aren't cheap and SLF seems to be no more expensive than others (pond enzyme's excluded). So, by simply buying SLF instead you could kill 2 gnats with one stone, so to say.
I use a smaller amount of SLF with every watering, instead of once a week as the bottle recommends. I have enough thing to remember so I try to simplify.
In veg I use 2-2.5ml/gal depending on the size and health of the plants.
In flower I use 3-3.5ml/gal pretty regularly. I might double the SLF with 50% strength nutes once a week.
I find the price to be worth it and I try to watch my dollars at the hydro store. I do find the discount at higher volumes much more agreeable. I usually buy the 2.5 gallon bottle and it lasts me a good 6 months plus, making around 50 gallons of nutes a day.
