 They won't go away! My husband is a banana freak and they hang out in the kitchen around them. Now I am seeing a couple of them in the other room!

Pour a bit of ACV in a cup and add a couple drops of dawn (or whatever dish soap you have).  Then cover with saran wrap and pierce about 5 tiny holes in the top with a sharp knife.  Pretty soon, all the gnats will be dead at the bottom of the cup.

We had a huge issue with them a couple months ago.  They are so irritating!!!  We got rid of everything they were feeding on (we recycle aluminum cans and even though we rinsed them out they were still all over them) and then bombed our house.  We were also having problems with giant spiders too, that's why we bombed.

Yup! I used to use a plastic baggie instead of saran wrap and cut the tip of just barely and point it down into the cup but mot touching tge apple cider vinegar. Eitger way just make sure the holes are small...big enough for them to get in small enough they can't find their way out.
