What’s the Fastest Way to Get Rid of House Gnats?

Buzz, Buzz, Buzz! It’s the season of gnats. These guys can be quite pesky and hard to get rid of, especially when they are all over your house. If you are struggling with these pests, here are a few ways to get rid of house gnats quickly:

Build a Sticky Trap

Gnats love anything sticky and sweet, so why not use that to your advantage? 

To make an apple cider vinegar trap, all you have to do is – pour a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar into a bowl and then stir in a little bit of dish soap. 

Gnats will fly toward the sweet trap, and the soap will keep them from flying away. These critters will be stuck and gone for good!

Pour Bleach Down Your Drains

If you see gnats hovering around your sink and pipes, bleach can do the trick. Mix half a cup of bleach with a gallon of water, and then slowly pour down the drain. Make sure to flush with hot water. You can always repeat the process if gnats return! 

Use Empty Wine Bottles

If you have empty wine bottles at home, instead of throwing them away, they are perfect to use to help trap gnats. Gnats are attracted to the smell of alcohol and won’t be able to fly back out of the bottle once they enter. All you have to do is leave an empty wine bottle on the counter, and poof – a bunch of gnats will be trapped inside.
