Name About Pest
Fungus gnats Use sticky cards to monitor for fungus gnat adults. Adults are small mosquito-like flies with dark-brown bodies, long legs and long antennae. Place cards horizontally above soil surface. Potato chunks can be used to monitor for larvae. Fungus gnat larvae feed on root hairs and stem tissue causing plants to wilt. Favorable habitats for fungus gnats include areas with standing pools of water, mud floors, spilled media and weeds.
