A Conversation for The Gnat Line

Hmmm. These bugs don't seem to be blood suckers. At least, I've never been noticeably

Ah ha. The gnat referred to here is not even similar to the species found in the UK.
Where UKies have ``gnats,'' Americans have ``mosquitos.''
The American Gnat is _very_ small, and doesn't perceptably bite. It's just a miniscule black speck that occastionally bonks into your cheek or flies into your ear. It's a nuisance, but not a parasitical one.
So, this guide entry is wrong. ``Gnat'' != gnat of UK fame.
For more info, see the ``Flies'' guide entry.
