Gnat Problem on Ficus

We recently purchased 2 indoor ficus trees.  They are both on the small side, 
and are doing remarkably well.  The only problem is that they both have what 
has been described to me as "fungus gnats".

I've been told to dry them out as much as possible between waterings to try 
and get rid of the pests.  Also, 2 TBS bleach to a gallon of water was also 
suggested.  I've tried both, but can't seem to get rid of them.  No harm 
appears to be done, except they are pesky and get into other rooms.

Does anyone have any experience/suggestions with these critters??

Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
