People also ask, how do I get rid of fungus gnats in my reptile enclosure?

Mix one part 3% hydrogen peroxide with four parts water. Allow the top layer of your soil to dry, and then water your plants with this solution as you normally would. The soil will fizz for a few minutes after application; this is normal. The fungus gnat larvae will die on contact with the hydrogen peroxide.

Moreover, how do I keep fungus gnats out of my terrarium? Best thing to do is to reduce the spores growing is buy spooning them out, air your garden out for a few hours and add some fresh potting soil. Keep taking them out often if they keep growing to control them.
