[Aroid-l] Fungus Gnats

The adults are only annoying, especially if you happen to inhale one.  The larvae on the other hand are quite destructive.  I lost entire flats of fern prothalli, and newly germinated seedlings from very small seeds before I realized what was doing the damage.  They chew the root hairs and small roots right off the plants!
