I would get a ping or something but I wanted my grow area specifically for vft it's my propagation station lol. As magicmutt just posted the yellow cards seem pretty effective so I'll combine the two techniques. Optimus the UK 100% is gloomy but we are having 35 centigrade tomorrow yay that won't last. I find the guards kind of embarrassing lol who the heck designed those hats.

Wait I have a question. Do you guys really drink tea instead of coffee in the morning and do y’all have a special time for tea?

Evenwind stop it I know what your doing lol. Optimus I'm so glad you brought that up I hate tea and only drink coffee lol I think in the old days the upper classes (we call them posh people) did have a "tea time" where they would eat horrible cakes and chat about who had the fanciest estate lol.

Optimus we still use the term "tea time" but it just means dinner nowadays (our afternoon meal) 5-6pm for most people but they don't drink tea lol.

I like the chilled coffee like Starbucks. What do you consider tea in your neck of the woods?. Here it is made with milk in it like coffee. Those herbal teas and stuff are even worse. Even the world's best hot drink won't get rid of my fungus gnats though.

I don't want to if possible.
Deterrent? It is far more than just that. I always use it for aphids and it kills them and stops them from coming back.
