Gnats

Find and eliminate the breeding source, i.e., find the area(s) of excess moisture.

Outdoors

If the problem is seasonal, i.e., it declines or totally disappears in the fall/winter then, it is quite likely (but not always) the case that the source is outdoors. The most likely problem spots are landscaped and/or heavily mulched areas or low-lying areas in the yard that remain extremely wet following heavy rainfall or a leaking outdoor water spigot.

Indoors

If the problem is relatively constant regardless of the time of year, then the source is more likely to be originating indoors or at least it is associated directly with the structure rather than an outside (landscaped) source.

Potted plants are often the culprits. Check plants to see if the soil is excessively wet. Drain any excess water from the dish/container below flowerpots. If the weather permits, move the plants outdoors or allow the soil to dry (not to the point where plants will wilt). Then, increase the interval between regular watering and the problem should decline.

Check areas where moisture is commonly found: kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms (e.g., a leak in the waterline to a clothes washer), as well as crawlspaces (which are more common in residential buildings).

Check other areas where leaks may occur as a result of storm damage or poor maintenance, e.g., roofs and crawlspaces. This is particularly important on commercial buildings with flat membrane-covered (e.g., EPDM) roofs. A leak through a break in the membrane material can cause the underlying insulation to become wet and subsequently moldy - an ideal habitat for fungus gnats. Inspect the roof and ceiling below for signs of leaks.
