Anyone deal wiht a gnat problem wit their pigs? We recently have started to have a house infected with gnats/fruit flies. We are trying to get rid of them but cant seem to find the source, we have seen then in their bedding lately as well as all over the house. Never had the problem before so I'm not sure if they are causing them or something else?

just seeing if anyone else had any problems

nope, also a strange time of year to get them :S
Check the guinea's bottoms ... (just in the hopefully unlikely incidence of fly strike happening..)
I would advise just clean out the pigs cage, use disinfectant and a pig friendly fly repellant, then put up them fly tapes to catch them...
