Pest Facts from HomeTeam

Gnats are tiny flies that range from 3/10 to 1/8 inch long, and have one pair of long legs and long antennae. Their slender bodies can be found in black, dark brown or dark gray, and have equally dark-colored wings. They are typically found in moist environments, near their food sources, such as moist soil and decaying matter.

Gnats can be treated by eliminating overwatered plant soil or decomposing food. Wait for soil to dry before watering plants, and store food in the refrigerator to keep gnats away.
