Is Captain Jack's Deadbug concentrate effective against fungus gnats?
If yes, what is the dilution rate?
The Captain Jack's Deadbug Conventrate is not specifically labeled to control fungus gnats, however it could potentially work for them at the same rate as the usage for fruit flies an other similar pest on the label of 2oz per gallon. Fungus gnats are primarily a problem caused by overwatering of your plants. You can eliminate your fungus gnat problem by drying out the soil of your plants for several days since they cannot thrive without moisture in the soil. If you are not having the problem with fungus gnats on any plants that are edibles, you could do a soil drench around the plant with a product like Talstar P used at the rate of 0.5-1oz per gallon of water.
