Non-Toxic Pest and Thermal Barrier

De-Gnat utilises natural earth minerals (silica compounds) to prevent soil pests and improve substrate quality. Diatomaceous Earth (DE) creates an effective barrier at the top of the substrate with abrasive properties to deter fungus gnat (Scarid fly). De-Gnat is comprised of specially sized DE particles that control gnat and other various pests at different points in their life cycles.

De-Gnat is made from ancient fossilised remains of a unique sea-kelp. This naturally refined compound provides many benefits for your garden. Not only for protecting plant roots, De-Gnat provides a natural source of silica and increases substrate aeration, while reducing compaction. De-Gnat also improves nutrient uptake and microbial activity, whilst acting as a thermal barrier against fluctuations in substrate temperature.

 

How to apply:

Add a layer 3cm of De-Gnat on top of the substrate

Make sure all growing media (substrate) is fully covered at all times

Re-apply during the growing cycle to keep this physical barrier intact

Irrigate with care to avoid disturbing the protective layer of De-Gnat

 

Secondary usage: Mix with coco or peat substrate as a natural improved alternative to perlite.
