Dealing with gnats in plants can be frustrating. Here’s how to get rid of gnats effectively:

  • Use Sticky Traps: Place yellow sticky traps near your plants to catch adult gnats.
  • Dry Out Soil: Ensure the top inch of soil dries out before watering again. Gnats thrive in moist environments.
  • Neem Oil Spray: Use a neem oil solution to spray the soil and plants, which helps kill larvae and deter adults.
  • Sand Layer: Add a thin layer of sand on top of the soil to prevent gnats from laying eggs.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide Solution: Mix one part hydrogen peroxide with four parts water and water the plants. This kills larvae in the soil.
