I am being palgued with gnats all over my garden. it is impossible to go out there to work. The walls and fence panels are covered and hovering in the air and on the plants. I live near a resevoir and they are usually in swarms there. There is also a works yard at the back of the house for the water company and they are drilling a bore hole. Could this be the problem and any ideas how i get rid of them or at least reduce the numbers.
Encourage birds into the garden-
Are these biting insects?
There are some Nematodes called Sciarid Fly nematodes that you can buy to try to tackle the problem, but to be honest with the water so close you might be fighting a losing battle aganst them, but then again for about £10 for a pack it might be worth a go so you can enjoy your garden.
Thanks I am so desperate I am willing to try anything and everything. I have been like a she-devil swatting the walls but it only sends them into a frenzy as you can imagine.
