CX Horticulture Tanlin
CX Horticulture Tanlin is a biological control for Fungus Gnats. It is a microscopic crystal which, when eaten by the Sciarid Fly maggots, swells up in its gut, perforates the gut wall and kills the maggot. Even though you use Tanlin, you may still see an occasional Fungus Gnat, don’t be alarmed. The Tanlin will be working. Remember that the maggots must first eat the Tanlin for it to be effective. 

The adult flies may still enter your growing area from other sources. In fact, Fungus Gnats have become a serious problem in nurseries and indoor growing areas all around the world. They, therefore, are numerous wherever it is warm enough and wherever there is moisture and food. That’s a lot of places that will support a Fungus Gnat population and provide a source of infestation for your growing area. We also recommend keeping your growing area dry and free of dead leaves, bits of soil, etc.

How to use
Tanlin is used adding it to your nutrient tank or reservoir. It’s alway a good idea to mix it in a small glass of water before adding it to the main tank. It can be used as preventive or as cure and always shake the bottle well before use.
