Ever since I moved to my new apartment, I've had a problem with gnats. I am CLEAN, I promise.. even more so since the gnats appeared. I search the apartment for some hidden filth, I wash everything daily (such as dishes, esc), but I still have these blasted gnats! I even sprayed the house with bug killer, but alas, they are still here.

AHHHHHHHHH!

Love's a lovely lad
His bringing up is beauty
Who loves him not is mad
For I must pay him duty

A friend of mine with the same challenge put a small dish of white vinegar near the sink, and the gnats left.
Give it a try.

do you have a lot of houseplants?
Sometimes they hide in the dirt.

And you are one good freeze away from curing the problem. Makes fall weather even more attractive.
