Id have to say, works here. I've been leaving my tubs 1in holes uncovered and still no gnats. I have a friend trying this same method to rid his gnats. We will see how his test goes.

Cool mushhut thx for the heads up!
ya gnats can be a bitch. I always get the little fungus gnats in the house that are small, black skinny body (not the one's that look like minature horse flies with a light color on them, not sure what those are, some kind of fruit fly i suppose) in the summertime. They seem to live in the first inch of the potting soil my sally plant is in. If i disturb the top soil they come flying out. I've killed alot of them with fly paper but it seems some straglers have moved on to other areas now, but their populous is slowly decreasing from my efforts, but I bet a hedge ball thrown into the mix will be a step closer to the end all to the battle.

In my area, I have more of a spider problem. Creepy lil fuckers... These don't work too well for spiders, but if I ever have a gnat problem, I'll start using these. They are cheap, local store here had em 2 for $1 a while back.

well i'll keep my eye peeled for a truckload to gather,
it's still early in season, balls are small.
should start falling here pretty soon though,
easy to grab off ground.

I've heard them called Osage Oranges.
Not that common around here.

Whenever I do see them, they are usually laying
on the ground in someones yard and look messy.
My guess is the property owner would be real
happy if someone wanted to collect some.

I just noticed some little gnat buggers on my sub and it brought a tear to my eye. Wish I could get rid of them, but then again there were so few that it didn't look like they were affecting anything.

Problem got gnats again. The gnats are only in my cake tub and not my mono tubs (which have the holes still uncovered). I put the hedge ball right in my cake tub but it had no effect on the gnats. I think I need a new ball because it looks a lil woren out and used. I'm going to see if a fresh hedge ball works.

after testing
my verdict = hedge apples are ineffective,
a waste of time.

Around here hedgeapples are all over the place and when I do see people selling them, they are $1 a piece. I laugh everytime cause I can get a whole car full within a 5 minute drive from my house. Its always been said around here that they are natural insecticides. "Place them randomly around the house inside and out and you shouldn't have any problems with bugs and even spiders."

wait wait if you just sit one in a room it will scare gnats away? What proximity do they cover like a 10 foot circle to deter insects?
