Re: nats or fruit flies?

You wouldn't belive how many of these little critters you bring home from the grocery store. Which is where I figured they come from every once in a while. I was going to test some fruit by keeping it in a closed bag and seeing how many eggs hatched from the fruit. But then I got to thinking... This is something I really don't want to know! L.o.L. We don't have potted plants in the house because the cats don't allow them.
We moved not long ago, and I miss having a garden, it's way to windy here on top of this hill (the trees even grow sideways, and a few of them blew over this year) This looks like a good place to look into indoor gardening. I'm not to sure about total hydroponics yet. I've read some great posts and gotten some good information. Hats off to the webmaster!!!

Re: nats or fruit flies?

I've notice the gnats around our kitchen sink area, but there is no standing water, as soon as you turn on the sink, the gnats start flying around, although we do keep bananas on the counter, we have since put them in the refrigerator, but the gnats are still around, and even we I'm in my bedroom eating, as soon as you open your food, here come the gnats. Help! how do you get rid of them???

Re: nats or fruit flies?

It sounds as if you might have friut flies living in your drain . Fungus gnats need some kind of roots to live on .Their larva look a little like fly maggots only smaller.If you have plants the best thjing to use on them is Gnatrol and then buy saucers for your plants and water from the bottom so the top couple of inches dries out as this is wre the larva live.Try running bleach down your drain.

Re: nats or fruit flies?

I have plants at work that were water plants in a glass vase, I decided to plant them in soil and found that I had millions of fruit flies. I looked in the bag that the soil was in and saw a bunch of them, i assume they were living in the soil. Is there anything I can pick up at the regular store for this? Should i treat the dirt as well or re-pot them?

Where are nats coming from?

After much contemplation, I think the nats are coming from the drains. It's the only thing that makes sense. I have them in the BATHROOM
(no fruit in there) and the kitchen. I have poured bleach and closed my drains for the night.

Keep you posted if this works.
