  • flypaper where they hang out the most also works in trapping them.

  • pour apple cider vinegar into a SHALLOW dish (preferably a saucer with no lip) and add a little bit of beer... then put a single drop of dish soap in the middle. then just set it on the counter close to the "population" HAHAHA! i do it without the beer, only because i don't buy it, so i never have it on hand. lol.

  • (forgot to mention... if there is a lip on the dish, you won't get as many gnats as you would if there isn't one. the smoothness of the edge makes it so if the gnat lands even close to the edge of the liquid, it will then be pulled into the liquid on its own.)

  • A.) Having nats does not mean your house is dirty. I know people who maintain a spotless house, even have cleaning people in 2-3 times a week and still have a problem with nats. I agree that if your house is not clean, then you will have more of them, and probably other bugs too. B.) I have been told to put a little sugar water in a small bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, poke holes in the plastic wrap, and place it on the counter or over the kitchen sink. That creates a trap.
