Default tiny gnats -flies- aphids

My flower seedlings, growing outdoors near Los Angeles, Calif, are
being attacked by tiny gnats.
Many of these in the new leaves.

I've been using Garrett Juice and that seems to attract larger black
flies.

What can I make at home to discourage or eliminate
tiny gnats, large black flies, and black apids on green onions?

Thank you, Dave

A little more info might help.
In defense of Garrett Juice, I'm using a home
made version, but am following the recipe closely.

Any home made mix I can create?
Spraying strong jet of water to discourage
aphids makes the plants too wet to often.

Safer Soaps are a bit expensive, so looking
for a mix I can make at home.
I have a huge supply of gratefruits.
But spraying that does not discourage any critters.

Thanks, Dave
