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?

How do gnats get into the refrigerator and freezer?

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.

Should there be water in the drain in the shower?

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.
