As of last night, I was doing a quick final check over my orchids before bed and in one of them, I have discovered very small, gray/black larva floating in my humidifier tray of my 1 phal. I took that tray, cleaned it out, sanitized it, and then put a tiney bit of water back in it as of 12am and now, 8am, there are MORE (but not nearly as many, yet)!
After looking at them, it seems that they are either springtails or fungus gnats. I am not sure if they are springtails because in that phal, i repotted this past spring (Spring '12). I believe that they might be starting to eat at the roots because my phal's bottom 2 leaves are starting to yellow
I have seen that there are a couple different ways to kill both pests, and that one of them is with diluted hydrogen peroxide watering- does this work?
PLEASE HELP! PICTURES TO COME SOON!
P.S. I know that if they are springtails, then they aren't harmful to the plant, but I would prefer to squash them now before they travel to my other phals!
