    tiny worms pests?

    Hey All!
    Iv'e got a N. sanguinea sitting in a tray to collect runnoff. But I watered it today and as the water pooled in the tray i noticed tiny chunks of dirt in the water movin arround. and as i looked closer i saw tiny barely visible white lookin worms. the longest were like, not even a centimeter. Hair thin maybe thinner. they scooch arround but not really inch or make s shapes they just kinda scooch. My first guess was nematodes which can cause root damage. has anyone seen anything like this and how do i treat it?

    Could be anything, most likely fungus gnat larvae.

    I read that a dilluted Hydrogen peroxide and water solution will kill larva. is this feasable to try or am i risking something here.

    Fungus gnats are easy enough to control with Bti. Mosquito Dunks are a easily found source in garden shops, hardware stores etc. Just float a chunk in your watering can and after a few weeks they'll be gone. Treat for 4-6 weeks and then once a month after that.
