So I transplanted my flowering clone into a 10gal pot. As I was taking her out of the old pot, I took out and inch of soil from the top and found what looked like grubs or maggots. All white. I panicked and just took out a few inches of soil until I didn't see any more bugs, then I threw her in the 10gal with this new soil. I was using Recipe 420 at first.
What can I use against these critters?

A few growers pointed me to some Complete soil control solution, blue bottle. On some reviews I read it's not for a garden that will be harvested for consumption.(food crops and weed)

I did a bit more research and found that mixing 3:10 hydrogen (peroxide:water) works as a pesticide in the soil.
Has anyone tried this?

I know that a lot of buggers don't like citrus and mint family oils so maybe spritz a bit of either maybe both around the base of the plant/soil/pot. You could probably sprinkle some mint leaves around the soil too. This is just information I've heard from growers though so you may want to research it yourself.

Use soilless media and fertilizers like fish emulsion if you want to keep it organic. Although if you do this, it will smell, and you will likely have problems trying to figure out the amount you need and gnats.

Therefore, stick to the proper ratio of nutrients to soil, this varies per the genetics of the plant. Using granular fertilizers and soil less media are good deterrents. You can also use a compost tea to water the plant.

As for the existing creatures. Use diatomaceous earth to give them death by 1000 cuts!
