The fungus gnats are trying to get established in the basil and mustard pots so I mixed up some “Knock out Gnats” B.t and gave all of the plants a quick drink.

Hopefully this will “knock them out” as the advertisement says. The last thing I want is to deliver 200 plants to the event and everyone is bothered by gnats. I don’t know where they (the gnats) are in there life-cycle, but I can at least kill off any larvae that are nibbling on the roots that would pupate and emerge in the future.

I just hope that there aren’t too many that have already pupated that will emerge next week.
