When i seen too many Sciarids i have picked a few egg cocoons from a spider, Meta menardi and let them hatch among the plants (one cocoon can contain over 100 young spiders). After a while she small spiders settle among the plants and make their webs. They usually starts to go very high, but after a while some of them settle low in the foliage and are rather successful in trapping the Sciarids. Perhaps not so very efficient, but at least keeps the Sciarid population on a manageable level.

All the best from northern Sweden, where we received another 60 cm of snow last week. /Åke

A vacume cleaner  can help, also using a fine grit  rather than humus on the top of the pot.
