I have little black flies on my indoor cuttings, how should I treat them please?

United Kingdom Gb

seedlings, and cuttings

On plant Geranium



are these flying around the surface of the compost? if yes then you need to allow the compost to dry off abit between waterings. if they are actually on the plants then you need to gently squish them or if you prefer use an appropriate spray insecticide.
