Fungus gnats

Thu, 24 Mar 2011 12:20:57 PDT
I don't know if it would be possible in a large commercial operation but years ago I read that pouring a layer of sand on top of the soil in a pot would eliminate fungus gnats, reportedly because the sand cut up gnats or their larva, I'm not sure which.  Can't beat that for organic,  My purely anecdotal and sporadic observation is that it works, though the sand needs to be periodically replenished if the pot is watered from the top.
