    Fungus gnats don't seem to like the sphagnum/sponge rock blend my CPs grow in.

    You could just use a systemic insecticide on your plants to save repotting all of them. A drench rather than a spray will kill all the larvae in the peat and continue to work for several weeks so any new eggs laid by the adults will not prosper. Are the insects hanging around your pots? fungus gnats would be mainly around your plants, if you have lots of flying insects indoors it is also possible they could be fruitflies. Just check and make sure you haven't got any old fruit or veg lying forgotten in the back of a cupboard somewhere that is enticing them in.

    Gnats are poor flyers and tend to jump around, with a bit of lift from their wings.

    Are you actually seeing anything wrong with your plants? It just sounds like you have some sort of infestation not connected with your plants.
