Insecticidal soap is a safe, easy way for the homeowner and the gardener to control gnats [Dipterid suborder]. It may be homemade or store bought. Some people may find this natural insecticide an irritant to the eyes or skin. But basically, insecticidal soap is considered to be of low toxicity and irritability to mammals.

I'm not sure if it will kill gnats, but there's a good chance that it will kill your plant.

Yes, bleach kills...well...anything. So bleach would definitely kill gnats. As a matter of fact, we have a gnat problem right now >.< and we are spraying bleach on them to kill them. Hope this helped.

One way to kill gnats outside your home is by using bug spray on your entire yard and outside areas. Prepare a bowl of white vinegar and dish soap that is covered with plastic wrap with holes poked in it and place it outside to attract and trap gnats.
