Gnats in the bathroom, mold spots on the ceiling

addictedtorosesApril 21, 2006

We have a lot of gnats in the bathroom, especially all over the shower. There is a plastic surround in the shower, then about two and a half feet of textured wall, if that makes a difference.The wall part above the shower is where the gnats stay.

We also have alot of mold spots on the ceiling from the moisture of people taking showers. I use bleach on those every few weeks and it seems to help for a while, then they're back. Does anybody else have these issues? Any help?

you need a vent fan in there. too much moisture causes mold. get rid of the mold and the gnats will leave.

Are you sure they are gnats? We moved into a house with drain flies. They look like small flies that don't fly well.
