hello everyone-

does anyone here know a good way to get rid of fruit flies,they must be breeding in the peat moss i used in my soil this year.
Don't leave fresh fruit around for them to eat :-)

Seriously, you probably have fungus gnats. Soil drench with BT worked for me. See this URL:


for the specific product I used. Or just go to http://www.gardensalive.com and search for fungus gnats.

The adults are attracted to yellow, but the commercial yellow sticky traps are ridiculously overpriced. I use Tangle-Trap (or Tanglefoot) on any yellow plastic. Yellow lids from large size Nesquick chocolate mix are just about perfect.
