I have a container that I am germinating some pitcher seeds in. I noticed these little clear worms moving around the surface. According to google, they might be fungus gnat larvae? It was suggested to me elsewhere to use a mosquito dunk to take care of my problem. Has anyone ever tried this before? I have one soaking in some distilled water waiting to use it. Should it be sprayed on the surface or introduced through my watering tray??

Thanks!

Put the dunk in the water in the tray. The dunks are inoculated with a bacteria that prevents the larva from completing their life cycle and they die.
