    While fungus gnats aren't desirable, I seriously doubt that they are the primary cause of your problems. If you decide to reduce their population, some version of BT application is much better than the other pesticide approaches mentioned... (imho)

    that is the active ingredient in mosquito dunks, BTI
    Apparently you break off a piece of this dry tablet thingy, place it in a jug of water, and water your plants the next day.

    Fungus gnats have been known to vector the Fusarium fungus. Fusarium has been identified in rotting rhizomes. Of course the presence of either could be a symptom and not the cause. However Fusarium is responsible for many plant diseases.
