Random visitor or early sign of invasion?
Looks like a big ass gnat. Dry the soil out.
Looks like a fungus gnat.
Damn . Im in coco and was hoping to avoid bugs
The gnats I’ve looked at have 1 piece abdomen and thorax. What about a flying ant?
This is a fungus gnat
You might be right. Maybe not a fungus gnat.
Fungus gnats are more mosquito like, and less ant like.
I guess I didn’t spend enough time looking at your pic. My bad.
I’d seen thousands of them in my last grow.
No worries . My gut instinct was a gnat too . I only kept looking cuz I didn’t want to believe it lol. If that is an ant it sure loves my ladies. Rolling around the leaves like it was cat nip . If I could say an ant was happy that was it @Drinkslinger
Happy, until “WACK”…
Yup . No free stays here. I’m hanging some sticky’s and giving them a good dry out just to be safe
Got me, you’re flying ant theory seems good by me. I’m not really a bug guy either though.
He doesn’t spend a lot of time here, but @kabongster is usually pretty good with bugs.
hmmmm…maybe, just maybe, a black soldier fly?
they are attracted to the odor of decomposing organic matter.
As long as it came alone lol. Thanks
You could easily hang a sticky trap in your space and that will tell you.
I’m not a bug guy either, really. First thing I noticed was what looks like either a stinger or part of his guts lol
I am certain that @Sirsmokesalot will know what that bug is. I am pretty sure that he is a “real bug guy”.
Not a fungus gnat looks like flying ant to me.
Good read below on fungus gnats…
First thing I did
That’s what i saw too. That’s why I kept researching
Definitely a gnat - could be a black gnat or eye gnat - definitely not a buffaloe gnat but without a few more pics I could not give you the species 100%
