Indoor Lemon tree treatment for black flies

Zone 7 | Nancy M. Hoopes added on February 13, 2012 | Answered

The tree has a small lemon. Little black flies about the size of fruit flies all around. What should I do? They seem to be coming from the soil or resting in the soil. They become active when I water the tree.
