As the title says... Will mosquito dunks or azamax kill Bennie's in hydro? I'll be using one or both methods to fight fungus gnats if is there any better ways. Only running hydroguard now for bennies. Want to try great white or real growers recharge, possibly brew some Heisenberg tea. Not 100 percent sure which beneficial bacteria approach I plan to take yet. Any recommendations which beneficial bacteria I should use in dwc? Just great white or just real growers recharge or brew a earthworm casting tea or a tea with ancient forest soil like Heisenberg recommends?

No, they are only interested in infection of aquatic insect larva and some nemetodes.

ok are beneficial nematodes ok in hydroponics with hydroton or more for soil? i have heard good things about them in soil. i know the mosquito dunks or azamax would probably kill them so i couldnt use either of those if i went the nematode route but wasnt sure they would work in a dwc system or not, feel like theyd all fall in the water and die or something? idk

I dont think ill do that, lol that just sounds crazy to me. i duct taped the tops so they cant get into my grow medium. duct tape sounds safer than coffee to me

Okay but duct tape has chemicals. All natural is the only way I do anything. My plants see nothing but organic feeds and fixes. Coffee is good for plants also.

Heres mine with coffee on top of dirt. I use it one time in veg and never again. It either kills them or repels but either way it works!

Unless you actually introduce nemotodes deliberately it's unlikely you will have them. Mosquitos dunks have been approved as organic by the USDA. They are a bacteria that infects larva and releases a toxin in their gut that kills them.

Not being a smartass, but coffee grounds are high in nitrogen, do you have to adjust for that? If so, how?
