I’m a Vermont medical grower and a long time listener here since Ep. #11 and haven’t missed a DGC podcast yet. Keep ’em coming please…
Scottie’s Wake-n-Bake titled, “Wake & Bake America Root Aphids vs. Fungus Gnats”, was one the most useful and helpful videos in a long time. I too had been wondering why I could not control fungus gnats during our long cold Vermont winters, even while using BT as a preventative. As Growguru mentioned, I too had been confusing the sticky cards bugs as gnats, when in reality they were the dreaded root aphids.
Those RA’s has been giving me a hard time now for months…. very difficult to keep them under control.
But Growguru mentioned a root aphid prevention product that comes mixed with rice hulls which is added into soil/coco when transplanting. The product acts as a time release to keep those bad boys under control for quite a while.
This is something I really need to take for a test ride… what is the name of this product and how can I get some?
