What type of pest treatment/prevention can I use for fungus gnats and spider mites specifically in sphagnum moss?
🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 Okay so now that I got that out of the way! 😅
Today while enjoying my usual morning coffee with my wonderful husband, (today is our anniversary btw 💒) I noticed a fungus gnat flying around!! I haven’t seen one of these since 02/08 (yes I remember the exact date, I HATE THEM!) I immediately and discreetly slapped it dead onto my arm and played off that everything was okay 🤥🤫
I recently brought home a FLF about a week ago and it had gnats in the soil. I did a peroxide soak and was planning on letting it acclimate for another week until I did a repot. I didn’t want to use up my Bonide granules since I’ll be adding them to the new soil in a week and thought it’d be wasteful! 🤡🤡🤡
So now I’m in fight mode protecting my other plants!!! 🦟🥊🥊 I’m treating all of my plants again with my old faithful Bonide granules but my new Polly is planted in sphagnum moss, so I’m not sure what to do there? 🤷🏻♀️ Neem oil is too weak for me and I’m too impatient and maybe a teeny bit lazy (Taurus here 🙋🏻♀️) to wait and/or do repeated treatments.
Is there anything someone can suggest that I can use to either pour onto the moss or spray that will protect against various houseplant pests?
