Fungus gnats and control

My seedlings are in an enclosed growth chamber (12' L x 5' W x 7'  H), 
so I don't know how well my methods of control would transfer to another 
application. Like Joe, I have successfully used over the counter foggers 
for roaches, etc. with success, but I don't like the smell of the 
aftermath or the thought of touching the residues.

I now use a Sunbeam Rechargeable Bug Zapper to completely control fungus 
gnats. Within a couple weeks my heavy infestation was gone, and has not 
built up since. I have found them on eBay and at my local Walmart. Only 
about 12" H x 8" W x 4" D. wrote:
