    OK folks, I'm tired of walking the dog around the lawn during the summer, and every 5 feet, there's a mini swarm of gnats on our lawn. Anyone know of a way to get rid of 'em for an entire summer?

    Even then, some of the gnats are reaaaallllyyy tiny but the No-see-umm can keep the larger ones off you. Now if you can make one that is the size of your property, you've got it made!

    (call me when you do, I'd like to see it)

    I catch each of those filthy buggers with chop-sticks and smush them.

    I have a serious problem with this thread. Gnats are animals, too. They are no less important than a dog or a cat. And you - you're talking about wiping them out by the millions. How dare you advocate this on a public forum! I am sending my complaint to the administrators posthaste.

    A really funny (but useful) way to rid yourself of gnats is to put something really tall on your head. Gnats always go to the highest point on an object they encounter, so they will just go right by your head and to the top of whatever you are wearing.

    I didn't believe this for the longest time, but after making a makeshift hat with a branch on the top, it works!

    Or you could try this wonderful product from Harbor Freight:

    Ryan, If it makes you feel any better, I kill anything that comes in my yard [​IMG] including Cats, Dogs, Deer, Jehovahs Witnesses, Girl Scouts, etc.

    p.s. Matt, how do you attach that product to your head? :wink:
