I am relatively new at gardening and I have just planted a small area with flowers herbs, tomato plants etc. I have small teeny flies all over everything. They are on the nastursums, pansy's pepper plants. How do I rid the garden of these without damage to the plants?
Any help will be appreciated.

I was browsing through the site for an answer to this very question. These small flies remind me somewhat of fruit flies and are on most of the evergreen type bushes(skyrocket junipers, low mounding junipers, etc.) around my house. They seem to congregate at the base of the bush. Would really like to know what can be done, as these particular bushes have not been looking so great this summer. Thank you

they maybe fungus gnats if the soil is too wet. With out more info it is hard to tell....

I would try treating with beneficial neamtodes. they will treat many kinds flies.

Thanks, I will try that, and turn the sprinklers off in that area.
