Hi everyone,

I have never had any encounters where plants are negatively affected by
fungus gnats. From what I understand, they are detritus feeders and don't go
after live plants. I find that on the contrary, their appearance it
indicates that you have a good and balanced ecosystem in your garden. I
don't mind them at all. But I also grow carnivorous plants and fungus gnats
are just food for them. They catch a fair number of these insects.
