Are butterworts good for fungus knats? If so, where can I find them?

Go buy a package of "Mosquito dunks" at the garden center. Put one quarter of one in your watering can. This will kill the larvae in the soil and stop future generations. Use sticky traps and manually kill the adults.

Thanks Tommy! I also asked about the mosquito stuff at the nursery and no one knew what I was talking about. I will try Lowe's or Home Depot tomorrow. Will they know what I'm talking about? - "mosquito dunks"

"Google" it. Then you'll know what I mean. They look like doughnuts. It's a NATURAL, SAFE bacteria called BT.

Supposedly utricularia bisquata is effective against these and is the most common sporadically growing utric there is. Pretty much all my pots have it in them.
