Anyone hear of using cinnamon to rid fungus gnats.

Hi Tiffer!

Haven't heard that one. I did use it when I broke up that Jade plant to help heal over though.

Oh yeah, on Toast with some butter and a little sugar.

Rocks. :-)

That comes the myth that fungus gnats are eating some kind of fungus in the soil. Cinnamon does have an anti fungal and bacterial reputation.

But the spice will not do anything to control the gnats, which are feeding on the peat moss, sloughed roots, and tender young roots.
