    Are they flying insects or crawling insects? If they're flying you could take the hermies out of the tat, bathe them: (be sure not to dig up buried crabs) Then you leave the tank lid open for the bugs to leave and slice open some raw garlic or put some vinegar into a little dish and place it in the tank. The very smell of that stuff will make the bugs leave. BTW I've tried this method myself and believe me it works.
