    Default Atheta beetles

    Hi all I have a fungus gnat problem and the product,s I have tried have had little effect. I have been looking into Atheta beetles as I can get 125 of them for £9. Has anyone had any experience with these beetles I have read that they are carnivores and are quite safe to have around plant,s, they lay there egg,s which hatch and eat the larve whilst the adults will catch anything on the surface and flying but I have sticky trap,s for airborn fly,s.

    Would I still just continue watering as normal?

    Thanx all

    I hate the little fukers not sure how old ur plants are but you can try neem, (not neem oil,which works well too) you can mix it with the nutes or just water with it, soaking the soil good, and you can sray it on the plants also
    good luck Brother Skunk
