Are you opposed to having fans outside?  I don’t know if that’s feasible, but with there being more air circulation it will helps with the gnat problem.

Also, you may want to call a local pest control company and tell them the issue and see what they suggest.

Minimize water in the yard for the next few days.  Just water the plants enough but don’t over water. 

You can also do your own fogger if you have a fire pit and just smoke them out a bit. 

If there’s an area they’re really concentrated put bowls of apple cider vinegar mixed with dishsoap and they are attracted to the apple smell but not survive. the bowl 

You can mix oil with peppermint (which is a deterrent for gnats but quite lovely smelling) and mist your backyard and the oil helps to smother any eggs that might hatch

We were married in our backyard in Michigan on a farm- mosquitos are killer. My dad fogged every night two weeks prior to the wedding. Probably not good for the environment, but the night of the wedding was bug free. We all bought citronella candle buckets and lined them around the property (people couldn’t see or smell them, just the soft glow they created)
