Knock Out Gnats.....Anyone used it with Success?
I have Gnats in my potting soil again this spring.....this is the second spring i have encountered this problem with my indoor house plants and seedlings. I repotted everything last fall to try to keep from having this problem, but to no success. I didn't notice them during the winter, (but hardly watering in winter and maybe i just didn't notice them) so i don't know if they came in with the new bag of potting soil this spring, or if they were there all winter. I have also had really big problem with getting potting soil that smells moldy when i buy it,(2 different stores even) and it seems the wood chips in it mold as soon as water touches it!
(Miracle Grow is no longer going to be my choice for house plant potting as its making us all sick, plants and people! I don't know if this bad smelling soil is bringing the Gnats with it or what, but it smells horrible to say the least. I am not sure if its what they are putting in the soil contents or if this problem is due to the way the store is putting the soil in storage)
Any how, i have tried repotting as i said, with no luck, i also tried watering with a bit of vinegar in my water which wiped out a few of my plants and left the gnats. Now i plan to purchase this stuff online called "Knock Out Gnats", which is $20.00 for the stuff.
Have any one here used this with success?? I don't have $20.00 extra as a single mom, and if its not going to work i'd rather have someone tell me now then find out the hard way!
Thanks.......& if you have any other product suggestions that are successful i sure would appreciate it! Plants help to brighten our days and our home, i hate to lose that to these stupid creepy gnats!
Enjoy your day!
