So I am Having major issues being able to be in my room for even 30 mins as it feels like when your outside on a summer night and the no see ums (midges) are out. When working for a few hours I come out itching like crazy, my head, skin etc, even through clothing it seems. Making it very unpleasant to be in the room.
I am growing indoors, In soil, in a garage that is separate from the house, in the backyard, pretty well insulated, certainly not air or bug tight by any means but not to bad and will get better (Hepa screens on the way). My plants are just about to be flipped to 12/12. They were obtain from a very reliable source that is not experiencing these issues. I have had them in my beds for 10 days. The soil has sat in my room for 14 days beforehand. I have 5- 4ftx 5 ft beds 6-7 plants per. This is brand new growing medium Fox Farm Happy Frog, Sunshine #4 mix. first run in this medium. I was told to flush with the issues I was having and certainly had the beds a bit too wet for a day or two this was 5 days ago. I have watered once since, yesterday, it needed it.
The plants seem ok thus far growing well, most looking good, new growth looks great - a few things early on that may have just been shock HOPEFULLY Maybe more to come on this… back to the bugs…
I have these sticky’s up and am catching these fuckers…are they fungus gnats or midges or what…? I will post better pics in a few hours.
I have sprayed twice with Flying skull nuke 'em. I also have Big time exterminator same ingred. as the nuke .
All natural methods of wiping these bastards out are what I I seeking from you kind souls
Please help me get back to what I love an stop this incessant itching.
