I don't know where else to post, so sorry. The bathrooms have gnats! There is no food in the bathrooms, so I don't know why they are in there- it's horrible! Any suggestions on how to get rid of them?

Pour some wine or vinegar into bottles with long necks. Just a little at the bottom. Gnats will fly down there and not be able to get out. Eventually they will drown.

Also be sure there are no hidden leaks in your bathroom, like maybe water that maybe trapped in the floors or under the house (depending on what floor you bathroom is on)

I had the same problem. They were getting in from outside mostly through the drains. I was constantly using bug spray where I thought they might be getting in & downing Clorox down the drains. Finally they just disappeared one day.

I swear by vinegar traps. I just put some vinegar in vases, make a paper cone, set that in the neck of the vases, set them around & voila- problem solved... they aren't pretty, but they work, are chemical free & are cheap!  here's an example. http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/how-to-make-a-fruit-fly-trap-h-108577
