What are red body gnats with wings that are all over your house and how do you cure them if you think they are coming from the drain?

Try pouring a drain cleaner down the drain you suspect is the breeding ground for the gnats. There is most likely a clog of hair or some other material that is holding moisture and creating an ideal environment for egg-laying and hatching. Standing water (especially that which might have food or plant particles floating in it) such as mop buckets, dishwater, soaking laundry, etc. can cause the same problem. Pretty gross, huh?

House gnats probably come from outside...... i think generally they don't travel that far. look for rooms with the most activity and check for potential breeding sites, plants (fungus gnats), drains, plumbing leaks, dirty trash cans, etc.

Yes I think so... early this summer I had gnats in certain areas in my yard. Purchased a UV bug zapper and haven't seen any in months.

Normallly, the baby house geckos will eat insects such as gnats, and yes they can catch them, and baby crickets, i think they might eat some kind of plant, but i am not sure. do some research before keeping ahouse gecko.

think the drain may be slightly blocked. Your best bet is to call a plumber now to fix it. If you leave it too long you may have toilet water coming up in other areas in your house. You can try to fix it yourself but most of the chemical treatments don't do a lot.

If the refrigerator and freezer have been working properly, it would be extremely unusual to have gnats in both. I can think of a few possibilities: # The freezer and refrigerator have been turned off for a while. (gaskets loosen) # Someone leaves the doors open way too long. # The refrigerator is set too warm and the gnats come in with the food. (very unlikely) You might check to make sure they are indeed gnats and not fruit flies.

Not in the classic sense like fleas do. They fly very quickly from a surface, some people think they are jumping when they do it.

You probably shouldent "see" water in the drain, but there is a "P" trap under the drain.The "P" trap holds water @ all times,this keeps exhaust fumes from coming into the living space.if water is not draining properly you may have some restictions ie:hair,soap,or some other debris. Yes there should be. I think it is to keep sewer gases from coming up. If it overflows, or is slow to drain, you may have a clogged pipe.

gnats have brains that are well more developed than the human brain, most of the time they are huge tool bags, well i guess tiny tool bags but ya know, anyway there are some cool gnats. one just followed my finger around, i think it was high from the smoke in the room. gnats are going to take over the world on dec. 12th 2012 so heads up! try to make some gnat friends before they kill you and your parents and pets! they will rape you too!
