Absolutely, yes. Nuking the soil is something those of us who have had bad outbreaks of fungus gnats and spider mites start doing because big box stores sell pre-contaminated "sterile" mixes. Most of my potted plants are inside in windows or under lights, so a bad bug outbreak infests my whole house and makes me use insecticides to treat, which I hate to do with cuttings for food plants. Right now, there's not nearly as much under lights as usual, but usually, I have pineapples, flowering shrub woody cuttings, rootstocks, seedlings, and zinnias growing inside. The zinnias in particular seem to draw bugs in, but at least they aren't food so I don't care what I dose them with. It's still far better, in my opinion, to nuking it all and inoculate it again with the stuff I want. I use FoxFarm products with microbes to fertilize anyway, so I'm fine being aggressive to the native flora and fauna. Or at least I feel like I am and don't know the difference if I'm wrong.
