black fly and Green fly

Posted: 09/11/2013 at 12:59

After trying lots of different methods of trying to get rid of these pests, I've finally found something that worked for me ( and other people who've tried it )

I put an inch deep layer of vermiculite on top of the soil in the pots and hung a sticky trap near the plants to catch the active flies, they take about two weeks to clear altogether using this method so be patient.

I believe this works because the flies don't lay their eggs in the vermiculite and they don't dig through it to the soil.
