: nats need to go away


Hi Debbie,
They are called fungal gnats. I had them in my plants and just removed all the soil, washed the roots of the plants, washed the pots in a solution of one part bleach and nine parts water and repotted with fresh soil.

Here's a site that talks about using nematodes. Scroll down to the last question.

Here's a place where you can get them.

Good luck,
Newt
