They are everywhere, bathroom, garage, everywhere. How do you get rid of them?
Try rats. Rats love gnats.
Then you have rats. Obviously, you'll need cats. Cats get rid of rats.
Then you'll have cats. They get annoyed by bats and will leave.
Then you are stuck with bats. Basically 6" wide gnats. Better stick with gnats.
Try closing windows and doors? Are you sure they ain't fruit flies? Bad banana somewhere in your AO?
Don't be a menace Dennis, just looking for a way to keep them at bay, while we play. Okay? That is all I can think to say!
You need a gnat trap.
Get an old she dog in heat. They will go where ever she goes.
Mix vinegar and some dawn dish soap in a bowl or shallow cup. Leave it out for a few days in the areas you most often see gnats.
It sounded crazy to me too, but I did it and the gnats are gone.
I wonder what the deal is? We have had them bad at out house for the past week. Today was the worst so far.
I don't know. When I got them the house wasn't really dirty or anything. There were some dishes that needed to be done, but nothing disgusting. All of the sudden there were gnats EVERYWHERE. Every time I would get some food out, I would be surrounded by the suckers.
Try the dawn/vinegar, it works.
No fruit or veggies out anywhere, may try the dawn and soap.
They will come to Red Wine very well (Cheap stuff) and drown in it. Sit out some small glasses for them and watch them flock to it.
Find the source and eliminate it. Fruit of Vegetable (Potatos?) thats fallen behind something and rotted.
So thats why they are hovering around my glass of box wine!
A small glass with vinegar in it. The little critters are attracted to the smell and drown themselves. Believe me this really works.
I'll second that. If there's something for them to eat they breed like crazy and you'll never be rid of them. Once their food is gone they die out quickly (usually less than 2 weeks, at best) and the vineger trap will speed that up.
I put some cheap red wine in a glass or bowl, then put seran wrap around the opening and poke holes just larger than the gnats. They get in but can't get out. We've had them lately as well but I figured it is because someone refuses to rinse their dirty dishes. I may have to try dish soap and vinegar also.
I have had those dang things for months. Thanks for all the ideas.
