Our redfoot's bioactive enclosure is suddenly having infestation issues iwth gnats and small flies. We have traps set up around the outside of the enclosure (zevo plug-in trap & sticky pads) but they have now gotten into the heating system and we are finding them throughout the house. The substrate is relatively new and the isopods do a great job of keeping things clean, but having these things flying around the house is downright maddening. I know they thrive in moisture, so does anyone have a solution for maintaining humidity and still keeping pests under control? We have zevo traps in every room & they fill up multiple times a week.

This article will help a ton.
You essentially want to give things a chance to dry put, but the article explains more in depth.
