Steven,  
Bagged soils are made with sterile ingredients and chemically treated to kill pathogens. That being said, there are times when you may open a new bag of soil and find gnats or other bugs in it. Chances are that bag of soil has been stored in the rain or another wet environment and gnats or other bugs have entered in the bag through small holes. If you open a new bag of soil and find bugs in it, I'd return to the store where you purchased it. Kathy

I'm glad you talked about the different types of bagged soils. My wife and I are gardening enthusiasts, and we've started a project in our backyard. With spring coming up, we want to be ready to make our plants and flowers grow healthy, so we want to get the best soil for them. We think that your article will help us choose the best soil for us. Thanks for helping us learn about the importance of reading the bag's information before purchasing the soil.
