Gnats are easily identifiable with long legs, small bodies and generally are weak fliers that are never far from a food source. Depending on their species, gnats congregate around several types of nourishment such as over-ripe fruit that has been damaged, wet soil in houseplants to food debris decomposing in the garbage or disposal.
Gnats, although considered a nuisance, can threaten you due to transmission of pathogens from unsanitary feeding sites to contaminating your good food. Due to rapid breeding, gnats can be a full-blown infestation before you know it making extermination more difficult. Typically a multi-step approach is used to eliminate gnats where their breeding habitats are eliminated, their food sources are removed and then their population is exterminated.
