do u think its ok to use the spray

Id use soem sticky traps and catch as many mature flying gnats as possible...let your soil dry out and you will notice alot of them start flying because the larvea have nowhere to live in a dry non fungus area.
next time around look into nematoads...they are micro organisms that eat the larvea and do not harm your plants.
lady bugs and stick traps will help kill flying adults

i have glue traps for mice all over the place and i caught prolly 1600 of em
i have this fox farm dont bug me spray and im just wondering how i can use this to kill them
i also have sm-90 but it doesnt seem to have any effect on them

The nematoads are the key i think because theyre living subsurface preditors that activley seek out the larvea and kill and eat them.
The gnats wont hurt your buds anymore than they already have...if your going to be finished soon Id hold off and keep your buds clean...Ive never tried the fox farms bugg off but I wont even put dishwater or pesticides near somthing that I am going to be burning and inhaling...just doesnt sound right ya know.
one this batch is done however, Id really wipe these things out and apply the nematoads into the soil next time...
dont overwater or leave dead growth around because thats what they love

as has been said, the larvae do the damage. the adults don't even feed, their job is to alert you that you have them and annoy the hell out of you. spraying the plant won't do any good. does the can say "safe for human consumption"? otherwise, don't use it on buds anyway.
try neem oil mixed with water and a bit of dawn soap instead of water for the soil. the larvae can do a lot of damage quickly. neem will cause the little bastards to forget to eat and they will DIE. i just noticed a few this morning when i went out very early. isolate the infested plants too. my garage is being used for that now. good-luck. j

edited to add- just looked it up and geraniums, lavender, mexican marigold and lemon thyme repel gnats. it won't help with the larvae but might get rid of the adults getting rid of future larvae. might be nice in my greenhouse too...
