last few days ive noticed a buncha gnat things flyin around my closet. is this something to worry about? i dont see anything on/ in / wrong with my plants, but those flies def came from in there, because i dont have them anywhere else in the house....
Do they look like miniature mosquitoes? Long legs and they scurry if you harass them while on the ground? About 1-2mm in length?
My guess would be fungus gnats. I get them in my houseplants and weed on occasion. They are really nothing to worry about until their population grows to a large enough size. An easy way to get them to stand still while you identify them are those yellow sticky traps you can find at the hydro store. They trap the insect in glue so you can have a look; they also knock down the adult population which is always a good thing. If they get really bad, neem oil decimates them. Good luck!
lol , i remember once I had put some bird seed in to saok for growing mushrooms and forgot about it. a few months later I found a mixing bowl with a lid on. took it off and a shit load of nats was nesting in there.
