To find the most appropriate person to answer your question, what county in Colorado do you reside? Thanks! Ruth

Ruth W. I don't live in Colorado, I'm from New Jersey, there was no one in N.J. who could respond to my question. I figured let me try some other state hoping that I would get a response. Thanks for your time.

Thank you for your questions. I am sorry you have been unable to get assistance (and you can always send questions out to us in Oregon!) Here is a short article that explains this pest and the best—and non-chemical—way to eliminate them from your houseplants: https://lancaster.unl.edu/pest/resources/fungusgnats.shtml I hope this is helpful. Good luck!
