And to (nellyw) that was alittle Greek to me .but well written and I will definitely resource it.thank you
As far as organic . Yes I remain as organic as possible I guess the least organic thing is the banana fuel I use ...but I alternate with fish amoltion.
These bugs are black ...smaller ans slower then fruit fly but look almost the same.I've pulled all dead leaves and rime off from the indoor aclimation from the out side ans found no bugs at all a spider or 2 .
My red and candanavish I separated because I got weird growth like bunched top disease or somthing not shore yet .
I went 2 years with no bugs like this and have been growing veg. For 20 year inside and out with minanal bugs indoors any way .
I could not find a review her but just order Dr Pyes scan ...predator mights and bath tubed Tue plants but that is definitely short lived .and then plants are wet again witch nigats trying to dry them out some .the bananas 10 of them still look pretty healthy and are growing .my citrus witch was hit to giant looking so great this past week only started to drop leaves and look alittle not happy .witch I can understand .they drive me nuts to .
Well thanks again all....

I let the soul dry out well and used fans to move the air. It seemed to have worked.
Then about 1 mounth later webs were back and so were flys . With I think are fungus nat.
Anyone have any more thoughts plants still seem healthy Exept 2 witch ended up with the top leaves all bunching on top of each other with a very light green wrinkle leaves producing from the center . Moved those trees to basment till I no what's up .

Any help would be cool .thanks from nj
Look up Nematodes on the internet. There are several varieties and you can purchase the type that seems to fit your problem.

I oder Dr Pyes scan mask witch takes care of apparently most everything. Hope that was the right choice. Never used them before for tropicals. Used dirt inoculate. For garden didn't notice much deference. Thank you Sr.

I've always used Steinernema nematodes and never used a multi variety nematode solution. Let us know how that works out.

Have you tried the mosquito dunks in water and then watering that liquid in. You can tank mix it with any water you're using. There is a commercial product called gnatrol that I use, but its the same bt ingredient. It does sound like maybe those are shore flies instead of fungus gnats. Shore flies look more like regular flies, but smaller, and slow. Fungus gnats are more delicate looking like mosquitoes, tiny and faster moving. Bt will control both of them.

It is most possible.shore gnats .what ever they are the magarty of them are in the dirt they take to flying if I disturb the dirt.
We do live in a area that has a lot of fruit fly problems.believe me or not I found a hole lot of dead one onthe other end of the house in a window sil no were near my plants .
I have not used dunk not shore were I could get it around here but will look into it .
I just aplyed Dr.Pyes scanmask to the pot soil never used it before nor have I seen much review on it will update you all in a few weeks on that product.
Thanks
