I thought that when the winter weather was as bad as it was, including 9 below zero, that maybe the pesky gnats of last summer would have died and would be a non-factor this summer. Boy was I wrong.

Then I heard that they will go away once we get a couple of 90 plus degree days in a row. Well, we got those days, but those pesky gnats are still around. They have succeeded in keeping me away from my patio again this summer.

I know there are lotions to use that can alleviate this problem, but I cannot recall ever having two summers like this. Summer is meant to be spent outdoors, but it is just not happening for this kid for the second straight year.

Hopefully, they will have died off before fall sets in.
