    I have fungus gnats and they are takeing over everything.

    My house is so filled and if you leave a glass of water or have a fishtank they go in there and drown.

    I need to know how to get rid of these things.

    What pesticide is safe for CP's?

    Sundews and butterworts are your best friends now. They love to catch fungus gnats.

    Or, you might also have luck trading for one in the trading forums.

    Sounds to me like you need some Gnatrol, killing only the adults is solving half your problem there will still be a juvenile population in your media.
    Do a search on google for Gnatrol.
    Peace

    Drosera and Pinguicula only work for a small infestation and will keep them under control if the population is small and steady.

    However go with Khai, I speak from expierence and I am sure he does as well. Gnatrol is awesome stuff, it is SPECIFICALLY forumulated to zap the larvae which disrupts the gestation cycle of the gnats. It will not harm the adults unless them come into direct contact with it but once they breed and die, thier eggs will not live in the treated soils so eventually after 2 life cycles you should be rid of them.
