Do you have gnats flying around your kitchen? They can be common problem pests for Georgia homeowners. In this blog, we cover:
Before you can get rid of them, make sure they’re actually gnats. Gnats are tiny flying insects with wings that include fungus gnats, fruit flies, and drain gnats. They’re so small, it’s difficult to see their color. Typically, they are yellow, tan, black, or brown in color. Where you find gnats is the most helpful indicator of what type they are.
Gnats are attracted to so many seemingly little things around your home. Ripening and decaying fruits or veggies, decaying food matter and moisture in drains, and over-watered houseplants attract gnats into your home.
One of the only indicators of a gnat infestation is when you see several gnats flying through the air in your home. Look for drain gnats when you turn on the sink, fungus gnats when you move a house plant, and fruit flies near fruit in the kitchen. You should take the first sight of these tiny winged pests as a sign that there is an infestation.
