How to kill gnats - Knowledgebase Question

Newark, Ne
Question by Nalliely

I purchased a plant and I have discovered it now has gnats. Besides putting gravel or sand, I need to know what product(s) (hopefully one that home depot carries)I can use to kill the eggs? Is there anything that I can use to apply right now to kill the eggs? Is there a liquid or dust or something to stop new gnats from being born? This is urgent!!

There is a product called Gnatrol that you can use as a soil drench. Or you can use insecticidal soap as a soil drench. Either product should be used according to label directions and a repeat application may be necessary. Best wishes with your new plant!
