    You have to re-pot the plants in fresh soil.They are fungus gnats which lay eggs in the soil,spraying will not get rid of them

    Gnats?

      Tried several different things that didn’t work. I finally purchased new potting soil and replanted. Weeks of waiting for results the gnats only grew in numbers.

    I use apple cider. I fill an old tea cup about half with it. The gnats go in it and drown. I leave it out and refill it once it evaporates. I tuck the tea cup between several plants to hide it from view. This really does work.

    I put banana peels on our roses, all those bugs left. Good luck

    Banana peels are great vitamins for roses. I have been wrapping the peels next to the base of the plant several times a year. I bury the peels.

    KibWhite gave you a good answer.I  also think changing the soil is your best bet if it's that infested. You will probably need to do this with all the plants that are near one another.

    I also think you should have rinsed off the soil on the plants roots before repotting in new soil. Good Luck
