Fruit Flies

Anonymous added on March 15, 2014 | Answered

Please help. I planted many different veggies from seeds, and I have fruit flies or something all in them. How do get rid of them without killing the plants? Also, I am growing green beans from seed and they seem to be dying. Not all are dead yet. The leaves are really dry. Thank you!

It sounds like you have fungus gnats. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/children/fungus-gnats.htm Neem oil will help take care of these pests but will not hurt the plants. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm The green beans may not be getting enough nutrients. Make sure the soil is moist and try giving them a bit of slow-release balanced fertilizer at half strength. Also, beans do best in soil that has been inoculated. This article will explain more on that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/beans/soil-inoculants.htm
