Yes. Usually when a gnat is in the substrate area, one has already laid eggs in the casing layer. Hopefully not in your case, but the odds are against you.

I had em infest my jars not too long ago, I had them flying allllll over the house. Somehow they managed to not find the fruiting chamber, so in the end I only lost a couple jars.

The one good thing is that once you clean up their food source, they will only survive a few days before they die out.

hi...bro

let me tell you a little story about gnats that happened to me 2 summers ago...

they got into my grow room and infested every casing I had growing at the time.

I had thousands of those bastards flying around...and in my stuff.

I let everything fruit...then dumped every casing that I had.

Then nuked the whole grow room with a bug bomb!~

Then scrubed down everthing and started over.

It really sucked!~

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

Normally, they breed in the soil of your houseplants. Be sure not to bring plants from the outdoors into the house as the weather cools off. That's a major source of infestion. Go around and check all your houseplants by disturbing the pots to see which one the gnats fly out of. There is a biological, non toxic control for them you can get from the link below. They also will come home from the grocery store in fruits, vegetables, and especially onions.
