Do not over water your house plants and make sure every plant has proper drainage for the water to flow through. Chemicals such as insect sprays can be very effective to solving the problem.

if you can't rid of it using chemicals try to use oil so if the stick to the oils they won't be able to climb through the plant. once they stick to the oil and make them immobilize they will eventually die. or use vinegar to attract them but make sure they wont be able to climb back the hole.

The first trick you can try is removing the top layer of soil from your plants. Gnats lay their eggs on the surface of the dirt. Use a shovel and get rid of the top layer. You can also try out lemon and lemongrass essential oils around the lip of the pots.
