    Anyone have any predatory nematodes to trade off? I'm in a bit of squabble with the dreaded fungus gnats. If anyone has any that would not like a trade PM me.

    I'm starting to get problems too, Nep G. I really need some common utrics and pings to help (and they really do help). They're really kind of gross when they number in the hundreds, know what I mean?

    Nate, funny you should mention that! In my drosera/utric/ping section I have NO gnats whatsoever. Which is good but when I watered my N. lowii 'trus madi' pot they poured out of the media! I promptly repotted it and then put up this thread. I seriously think these guys hurt the health of your plant regardless to what anyone claims.

    How about this:

    http://www.ghorganics.com/BTI_For_Fungus_Gnats.htm

    I ordered it once, but lost it when I moved, and before I had a chance to try it.

    For what it worth, my utric collection tends to be pretty infested with fungus gnats, but the plants don't seem to mind as long as I keep the sticky traps around to keep the population in control. They are still kind of annoying, however.

    Thanks for all the help guys! I really appreaciate it! The fungus gnats are more nasty and depressing to see in your rare Nepenthes pots! However the infestation is moved from moderate to high....in a few weeks it'll be bad to severe. Hopefully I can get thse nematodes or the BT isrealensis things to get them killed for me! Thanks for all the help!!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I am guessing you have an aversion to pesticides..
    The only time I ever notcied these guys are plastered on ping leaves.
    These nematodes control fungus gnat larva, I take it?
