cant kill these little black gnat things

I seem to have these little black gnat things that I bought a bug spray that is made for gnats. They don't seem to be effecting any of my indoor plants but I can't seem to get rid of them!?

Might be a moisture issue with your soil.

Dont take my word though, I know just enough to be dangerous.

Giga,
They sound like root gnats. I would guess that the soil is staying wet for too long and that there is too much organic material in it. Allow the soil to dry out some before watering and they should go away. Also maybe a faster draining soil mix.
