Fungus Gnats
Mon, 21 Mar 2011 09:32:22 PDT
I understand the "scare tactic" of not wiping out a fungus gnat infestation with every chemical known to man. Some of us choose what is best for the environment, as well as a natural approach to growing. 
The Yellow traps, "indicators" or otherwise, do the job for me. 
I'm sure they do a great job in eliminating weak seedlings that would lead to a weak plant, just as in nature.

Greetings from GERMANY

Rational thinking VERSUS sweet wishdreams, I.O.W.:

Yellow sticky traps are merely useable as an indicator for the prevalence of 

that pest.

If you raise seedlings you are badly advised, to omit a genuine, effective pest 

control, and you might experience a devastating outcome even.

One síngle female fungus gnat will lay more than 100 eggs, and, all the worse, 

apportionedly on several locations.

traps. They really work. Yes, you will always have a few gnats fluttering 

around, but that's nature. Nature was not intended to be sterile.
