Q.

Gnats in potted plants outside

Zone 69143 | jladams@hersheytel.net added on July 3, 2018 | Answered

The potting soil, or greenhouse plants apparently had small little flying bugs/gnats in it. I can't get rid of them with the Bonide Systemic Houseplant Insect Control which has always worked. They are distorying my plants. What can I use other than the old dish soap and water that doesn't work? Thank you.

These are probably fungus gnats and while they are a nuisance, they don't damage the plant. Here is info on getting rid of them: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/fungus-gnats.htm
