They're attracted to mould on the soil surface generally. Spray the soil with a baking soda solution with a couple of drops of dish soap or a 3% dilution of hydrogen peroxide. Cut back on watering. Let the surface dry out to an inch deep before watering again

If they persist, apply granules containing Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis--sold to control mosquitoes in ponds and fountains--to the soil, and water in. That will kill the larvae, and the adults soon age out after.
