We have a gnat that is flying around our house inside and making our lives miserable, they bite our eyes, nose, hair, ears in fact I believe they are biting alll over now, in the house everywhere .
We found a squirrel had been in our attic, could they have brought these mites or gnats with them, they have been captured by a critter control company, they got one..then they put delta dust in my attic…this did not help whats in the house, used D-force HPX and also prevecort ( I think thats the word) all to no avail..
Can you suggest something we can use to eliminate these horrible pest that are making our lives miserable. we reside in Florida, also notice white specks in our car on the dash board, we clean them off and within hours they are back on the dash.
There are several kinds of gnats that can get inside any house which might behave the way you describe. Some are attracted to moisture, like fungus gnats, and will readily fly into your eyes and nose or on food. However, these don’t bite and for the most part, they’re just a big annoyance. You can read more about them on our FUNGUS GNAT CONTROL post.
Biting gnats can be more of a problem. They’re typically bigger, faster flying than fungus gnats but even worse because they bite. Our GNAT CONTROL article explains all you’ll need to know about them but in general, they don’t become a major problem inside homes as much as they are a problem outside around the home so I’m not sure it’s this you have.
Regardless of which one it might be, the organic FLYING INSECT KILLER used as needed in the home will kill them off as they appear. But as our online articles explain, if you don’t find the nest site, in most cases the gnats will keep coming back. For that reason, it’s not unusual to be spraying quite a bit if you rely on manually applying the product. To reduce the amount of effort you put out, consider getting one of the METERED AEROSOL MACHINES which are automatic and quite effective. Just set them up throughout the house and depending on the setting you use, refills should last 1-2 months.
As for the white specks you’re finding on your dashboard; that’s a mystery based on the limited information I have. To further help, you’ll need to give our office a call at 1-800-877-7290. At that point we’ll be able to ask some more questions and maybe get to the bottom of this problem as well.
