I've noticed that larvae are sensitive to light they will come to the surface of the soil in the dark and once you turn the lights on they wiggle back into the soil where you can't get them. But if you give some cover like saran wrap over the soil and then after a while turn the lights on, and repeat this from time to time you can pick them off with tweezers. Eventually you would end up with one survivor at most and they aren't asexual.
This works in small containers.

K I used H202 in a dunk for 15-16 hrs, but I couldnt get rid of the adult gnats... my substrate all fell apart when I tried to wash them off and they escaped...they survived immersion

so now I've recased and the bastards are all over the place still...

but Ive got the solution! Nematodes! Theyre nasty little creatures that hunt and kill all kinds of worm and larvae by penetrating them and digesting them from the inside out! They also attack adult flies and other bugs too... Ive ordered some in to massacre the flies muching my mycelia..
Steinernema feltiae is the thing

Theyre gonna have a feast!
