Gnats in mushroom compost

Asked May 5, 2020, 3:05 PM EDT

The gnats are chewing on my eggplant and pepper plants! There literally seems to be thousands of them in my grow boxes. We mixed peat moss with it in the boxes. I have put sticker tape in the boxes. I am afraid to plant more plants or sow seeds until I can take care Of problem. HELP!!!

Thank you for your question. I think there needs to be a positive identification made of the insect(s) first. We suggest you contact your county Extension office for help:

Good luck!
