how to eradicate strawberry flys

Posted: 09/08/2012 at 19:58

Hi Sotonggeoff

The reason i am growing my stawberrys inside is because i live in a block of flats i dont have a balcony or even a window sill outside.Also its considered a rough part of town and the kids are so bored they get a bit destructive.Although a year ago i grew loads of stuff around the comunal area and got the kids to help me water them ect.Anyway i was hopeing to put stuff out this year and ordered my strawberrys no other plant and i have loads including tomatoes ,chillis are constantly surrounded by this horrible little flies.Im not aware of any other reason and they are strugling to survive i love growing things and im usualy verry good at it,The children are older and less interested wonders of plants they pulled up my attempt to make the surroundings nicer in spring and now the flies are out to get the fruits of my labour.

Hi can anybody advise me on strawberry fly my plants are in a hanging basket but they are not thriving to well and to be honest they seem to have had some kind of fly around them since i purchased them,i have seen somewhere that one can spray the roots with diluted soap as the lavee must be somewhere.Can anyone offer any insight with experience with this issue and either confirm or dispel this suggestion i have the plants indoors in a south facing window bay and some have not made it i really want to save whats left. thanks
