Keeping gnats away from houseplants?
Ohio, United States
Hi, I am still having trouble with the gnats on houseplants...and I hate bugs!! I wiped down the leaves and that seemed to help for a few days but then I started to notice more gnats appearing. Today I changed the potting soil and got rid of as much of the old soil as I could and replaced it with miracle gro potting soil. I noticed little tiny round moving insects in the old soil. Are these the gnat larvae or a whole other problem? I have been trying to not overwater, but I think I am a compulsive overwaterer...can I just mist the plants? I think this may help me limit the amount of water in the soil. Any other tips for keeping away the pests? Thanks:o)
