Within the last couple of weeks I noticed gnats flying around and flying right into my face. The issue was that these were not in the kitchen where you would normally think they would be- perhaps by fruit or vegetables on the counter. They were in the living room flying around the seating area. So after some investigating I found my 2 new houseplants filled with them. Actually the houseplants’ dirt was covered with them. What are they: FUNGUS GNATS
