Uhm..gnats in the grow tent

#1

Gnats have invaded our grow tent. Our grow tent is INside our house, in a storage like room made out of an old garage. *weirdness abounds~ No gnats (that we can see) in the actual room. Just in the tent.
Ideas on how to get rid of them?

Yellow sticky traps, a one to two inch later of sugar and across the top of the soil, let soil dry out completely between waterings…

Sugar? Not heard of using sugar did you mean sand?

A product called BTi. It’s available on eBay. 2oz is plenty.
