Last summer seemed particularly buggy. In fact, it was pretty hard to mow the lawn or even stay outside very long without being swarmed by gnats. And unlike other years, these "gnats" didn't go away in the summer heat. In fact, they got worse as summer wore on.
Usually gnats try to fly into your eyes and ears, but these guys bit. I bought a gnat hat with a net that dropped down to my shoulders and wore long sleeves and jeans tucked into my socks when I worked in the garden. My clothes were way too hot, but it was either suit up or spray myself with repellent every time I went outside.
