CX Horticulture NilNat (TaNliN)
CX Horticulture NilNat is an exceptionally easy-to-use, non-toxic, environmentally safe pesticide. That can be used as a preventative against the root-eating Fungus Gnat and the Sciarid fly. Fungus Gnat are one of the most crop devastating insect pests. They can do even worse damage than Spider Mite because their damage is hidden within the roots. The first signs of Fungus Gnat are usually an abundance of small 3-5mm long flies on the surface of the root ball or growing medium, at this stage the plant will be suffering. Each Fungus Gnat female lays 200 eggs in warm conditions. The eggs hatch out into maggots which immediately start eating the plant’s roots.
How it works
CX Horticulture Talnin is a non-toxic biological control for Fungus Gnats. It contains microscopic crystals which the Sciarid Fly Maggots will eat, this swells up in their gut, perforates the gut wall and kills the maggot. If you still see the occasional Fungus Gnat, do not worry, Tanlin will be work as soon as the maggot eats it, then it will be highly effective.
