UnhappyFungal Gnats cure please?


Hi Everybody,

I have several plants which I keep outdoors mostly nowadays since its summer. Eventually I'd like to bring them inside once winter starts.

But I am tire of fungal gnats getting inside the house. I already see quite a few in some of my plants.
Is there a remedy that any of you have tried and it worked?

I've come across quite a few tips on getting rid of fungal gnats but I need something accurate and that has worked for someone successfully.

Thank you ! Have a good one!
Niki

1 - take the plant to the maximum amount of sun you can (to dry the soil denying the gnat a home) without scorching the plant

2- lots of cinnamon (anti bacterial and as a powder dries, kills the things gnats are eating)

3- gnats leave and die

I would repot plants first washing their roots in new soil.New soil should be microwaved for a couple of minutes to kill all the eggs and larva and cooled down before you use it.Also keep your plants on a dry side.I used to have a lot of them before I started microwaving store bought soil .Never had them since
