We are in Southeast Ohio and this seems to be the worst gnat year I've ever seen. I thought that they didn't do well in warm dry weather. It seems we can't go outside without several making a bee-line straight for our eyes and they are swarming our livestock.
We don't have standing water on the land, but there are creeks on adjoining lands that might be hatching grounds.
How is everyone else doing? Are the gnats and eyb-bugs as bad where you are?
