Many of you have been around this summer. What about gnats? Do you have them? This summer I have been pestered by these things. I have killed a lot of them. Then they seem to multiply in thin air, not really. We had some over ripe bananas. We got rid of them. That did not seem to matter. There was nothing else that I knew of in the house. I swatted and swatted. I sprayed something one time. It seemed to help. Yet they came back. We have gnats in the yard so I suppose that they must be from the outside. At any rate someone anyone please tell me how to get rid of them completely. Your reward will be a great big thank you!
