Gnat Bat - Effective soil barrier against Fungus Gnats and problematic insects

- Completely unique formulation that actually works!
- 100% natural materials
- 1L treats up to 8 x 200mm pots + Reusable for up to 3 applications!
- Available sizing 1L + 5L

Gnat Bat allows gardeners to effortlessly deter Fungus Gnats from entering their pots by creating an impenetrable barrier for crawling and flying insects.

Products containing granular sources of diatomite or pumice, lose their ability to create an effective barrier almost overnight! 

This is because as soon as the substrate gets wet & absorbs water from the growing medium, its shard-like structure is "melted" and no longer performs as advertised.

Gnat Bat is completely unique in that we use a complex matrix of micronized diatomaceous earth and infuse this into highly porous, lightweight volcanic rock. 

This allows gardeners to easily remove the Gnat Bat from their pots to water a plant (extending the product's life) or to reuse the barrier in another pot.

How to use

Before using Gnat Bat, water any plants that require it first, preferably from the bottom to avoid wetting the soil surface.
Apply a 5-10mm layer of Gnat Bat to the top of all effected pots and soil surfaces. 
After 24hrs, if insects are seen exiting the bottom of the pot, place 5mm of Gnat Bat in the drainage tray where the insects are exiting.

Avoid getting your Dr Greenthumbs Gnat Bat wet, as this reduces its ability to create an effective barrier. 
If plants require watering while undergoing treatment, simply remove the Gnat Bat barrier and replace it down once soil surfaces are dry.

Keep out of reach of children and do not breathe in the dust from this product.

All plants pictured are considered an accurate representation of the plant you will receive. It represents the rough size, colour and condition. These are plants however and due to changes in climatic conditions and plant variation there will be minor differences.

We are now adding in 'Transport risk' in the product description as some plants are more delicate than others and/or find transport stressful. We will rate in terms of Low, Medium or High risk and discuss specifically to the plant in question. If this information is not provided yet please feel free to reach out via email to ask. Please also note that if plants are sent with new leaves that haven't had the chance to harden off they are susceptible to physical damage in transit as the slightest touch can cause it. 

Please note that we use 'Bugs for Bugs' regularly as a preventative control measure for pests. These predatory bugs are administered in vermiculite. This vermiculite is sprinkles onto the leaves and sometimes remains. 

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
