Help for fungus gnats

I've seen a few messages about fungus gnats taking out a whole batch of seedlings. While I'm not usually one to drop a lot of chemicals into my plants, in order to maintain the dozen or so plants in my work "cube" I've had to invest in a systemic insecticide. The one I use is safe to use on tomatoes, roses, shrubs, and flowers too. It's made by Ferti-lome and is only about $3.98 for a moderate-sized bottle of the dry granules. Active ingredient is 0-0- Diethyl S-2 (ethylthio) ethyl phosphorodithioate.

A little bit is all it takes to clear up the problem, although management practices (avoiding damp soil) go a long way too!

HERE'S TO A HAPPY/HEALTHY NEW CROP OF SEEDLINGS!!
