Q: We have gnat larvae in our showerhead

We live in Chengdu and we've just discovered gnat larvae (I think) coming out of the nozzles in our shower head.  It's not a simple screw-on device and we don't have any tools to take it off.  We're also concerned the problem may be in our pipes and not just in the shower head.  Would calling a plumber or exterminator be helpful? Or does anyone have any home remedies for this problem?

Gnats always live near fruits and vegetables.   Store your fruits and vegetables in sealed containers.  Make sure you take out the garbage, and make sure you don't live near people who let garbage sit around for days.   Gnats do not live in shower heads or near water, but they might go up in there trying to find where the smell of rotting fruits and vegetables is coming from.

 

Of course, Gnat babies, like any other babies are very hungry.. So they're going to be born inside fruits and vegetables and not inside your shower head.  They don't live very long, a few days at most.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
