Mesh Filter Bag - Medium (for brewing Mozzie Tea to treat Fungus Gnats)

$1.70 NZD

As fantastic as mozzie tea is to treat Fungus Gnats, the Mozzie Bits granules themselves can be a tad annoying (not as annoying as a Fungus Gnat though, argh).

If you've already read How to Get Rid of Fungus Gnats you'll know about the two step method, using sticky traps to catch the adults, and mozzie tea to kill the larvae. Except brewing the tea is the easy bit.

Once brewed, you've got lots of used Mozzie Bits granules floating around, some on top, some sunk to the bottom. You can strain them using a sieve, if you have a sieve, as well as spare containers to tip everything into. Hopefully without spilling the tea everywhere when you tip. Messy, fiddly and a waste of tea.

Or - like a teabag lets the tea leaves brew without ending up in your cuppa - you could just pop the Mozzie Bits granules in this reusable mesh bag. Now once brewed, you just remove the bag, granules and all, tip them in the bin, and water your plants. No more Fungus Gnats. No extra containers needed. No more fuss!

The medium mesh bag measures around 15cms wide x 20cms tall. You only need 4 tablespoons of Mozzie Bits per 4.5 litres of water, so this bag will hold plenty for treating much more if needed. There is also the small mesh bag available separately (the small measures about 10cm x 15cms).

Note the photo of the empty mesh bag is this size bag, however the photo of a mesh bag with Mozzie Bits granules inside is the small bag, so the medium fits about twice as much as the photo shows.
