Small Black Gnats in the soil

  1. How could I get rid of small black gnats all over in the base of my bucket? they seem to hide in the top layer of the soil and around the edges... could they cause root damage? There are alot of them,to many to squash. So what could I do to get rid of these? thanks!
  2. They are generally harmless, just annoying. They tend to appear when the soil is allowed to stay too wet. Let your soil dry out a little more between waterings, and they should disappear.
