Gnats in the House

Does anyone else have gnats in the house? I don’t know what the deal is but suddenly we have an abundance of them and I don’t know what to do to get rid of them. At first I thought it was a fruitfly issue (found a way overripe orange in the fruit bowl), but after I threw that out, they remained. Is it seasonal?

I can’t drink a glass of wine without covering it up. Maybe I’ll use that as a trap.

I found this discussion in a quick google search, but am looking for something (hopefully) without using chemicals.

Any suggestions?

  1. One thing I found

    “Through this research we have found the making a simple fruit fly trap in a juice glass with a couple of DROPS of apple cider vinegar and a paper funnel “plugged into” the top of the glass works well in trapping those adult breeders and egg-layers, but finding out where the eggs are hatching is quite another thing!!”

    Do some searches on (all organic)

    Here is one thread

  2. Thanks ladies. I’ll check those out. Since yesterday I’ve had a glass of wine sitting out, covered with plastic wrap, and a few holes poked in. It picked up a couple of the buggers, but they were still ALIVE in there. So, I poured a little oil in and within a few minutes they were dead. Since then I have half a dozen in the glass. I made another “wine trap” and am hoping to get rid of some more.
