How do you get rid of gnats?

I have like 100 gnats in my house and they are driving me crazy! I know they like to be around fruit so I put all fruit in the fridge. They are still here! I put up some fly traps and caught a few but they are still here! I am afraid to eat cause I dont want one landing in my food! What should I do?

  • I heard apple cider vinegar with a few drops of dish soup in a glass, their attracted to is and get stuck in the liquid. also if you have any house plants check the soil they may be hatching from there, you may have to get a insecticide spray for them, they have some that are natural & safe around kids and pets
