Seriously, you probably have fungus gnats. Soil drench with BT worked
for me. See this URL:
for the specific product I used. Or just go to

The adults are attracted to yellow, but the commercial yellow sticky
traps are ridiculously overpriced. I use Tangle-Trap (or Tanglefoot) on
any yellow plastic. Yellow lids from large size Nesquick chocolate mix
are just about perfect.
