I just returned from checking mosquito traps with Mitchell’s rugged, fearless skeeter hunter, Tom Kippes. We found a few dozen mosquitoes in the traps after hundreds were reported every day last week.
But the gnat count was in the hundreds. These buffalo gnats, as they’re known, are apparently impervious to the fogging the city does. Kippes recommends using vanilla — apparently gnats detest it. I also prefer chocolate.
Any other tips for dealing with those gnasty gnats?
