General Information

Tanlin is to be added to your nutrient solution and gets to work at the source of the problem by killing the larvae that are laid by the adult flies around the roots of the plant. It is these larvae that do the damage to your plants by eating away at the roots. Tanlin works by depositing a small crystal by the roots of the plant that the larvae eat. This crystal then swells inside of the larvae causing it to burst and die. You will notice that after a period of time the number of fly's in the grow room will start to diminish as the larva are being wiped out.
