How do I get rid of these annoying gnats?

We live next to a wooded area and I have HUGE gnats everywhere! I swear some are almost the size of small flies. I make sure to rinse all the dishes and keep no standing water in the sinks. Also, I have to keep the stopper in the garbage disposal side of the sink because 1) it stinks, 2) I think that is where the gnats were "staying". Doing all of this has reduced to amount of gnats but I cannot seem to truly get rid of them! They are driving me crazy and I don't know what else to do!

P.S anyone know how to get the rotten smell out of my garbage disposal? I have tried pour bleach don the drain to no avail.

  • Sit out a some wine. It will draw them to it and they will die in the wine.
