Default Re: Bug busting

Rather than spend tons of money on chemicals (I know hydrogen and oxygen aren't harmful) perhaps you can just not water the plants for 2 weeks?? Or water from the bottom of the pot instead of the top.

I have manged to keep the gnats under control by allowing the soil to dry out between waterings, keeping a strip of yellow fly sticky tape nearby, and I also have a USB powered bug zapper / night light that I use if things get real bad.
