Can I use Sevin Ready to Use Bug Killer on succulents in my home for tiny gnat-like flying insects?

Sevin Ready to Use Bug Killer is for outdoor, residential use only, according to the product label. You may have fungus gnats around your plants, which are caused from over-watering plants and will quickly die out once plants are drained properly. For treatment of ornamental houseplants, you could use a ready-to-use product like Bonide Insecticidal Soap RTU to kill insects on contact. Talstar P is an excellent concentrate that you dilute with water and apply to ornamental plants with a pump sprayer. Talstar would offer residual control of listed insects on these plants.
