Debra R. says
Just saw your video on plant pests…namely fungus gnats…and wanted to share this w/you and your readers. I discovered that Walmart sells Tomcat Glue Boards for less than $3 for pack of four boards. They are for mice, roaches, scorpions, and other unwanted pests. To stretch my dollar, I use a box cutter to cut them into 4 equal pieces. Do not use scissors as the sticky substance will gum up your scissors and it will be almost impossible to clean it off. Cut first then peel off the protective plastic sheet. I CARFULLY lay the strips sticky side up on top of the dirt in my houseplants. Be extremely careful not to allow the sticky part to touch the leaves or you will lose part of the leaf trying to pry it off. Stays stuck to human hair too! Have done this once or twice!!This stuff is really strong but it catches the gnats. I also use whole boards in my larger plants. You can even tape the strips or boards to a chopstick or probe and stick them into the pot. They will look like a white flag sticking out of the pot, but I had more “leaf fatalities” doing this. I tried the apple vinegar thing, petroleum jelly on an index card, among others. No luck but the Tomcat boards work quite well. After about a week, you should change out the boards because dust will stick to them and make them less adherent. We send people into outer space and back successfully. You’d think someone would invent a quick, successful way to eliminate fungus gnats!
So true Debra – fungus gnats are so annoying! Thanks for sharing all those tips. Nell
