Small Flies In My Hosue Plants. Scientific names bradysia and other species. The fungus gnat can cause a lot of damage by laying eggs in and around potted plants.
Timing all year round on house plants and in greenhouses. These are similar to soil gnats, with black or grey wings, and are pretty small, usually only a few millimetres in length. For best results add a lid with small holes or a paper funnel to prevent them escaping.
Fungus Gnats Are Tiny Black Or Gray Winged Insects.
They live in the soil of potted plants. Use your vacuum cleane hose attachment to suck up adult whiteflies (but be careful not to damage the plant). Then they are probably fungus gnats.
These Are Fungus Gnats, Also Known As House Plant Flies And Sciarid Flies.
Despite their small size, adult fungus gnats can readily be identified by their wing venation. They typically measure about 1/8 to 1/16 inch long. Their wings appear disproportionally large for their bodies and are covered in tiny scales, which explode into dust when swatted.
Common Name Fungus Gnats Or Sciarid Flies.
