How to Get Rid of Gnats


How to Get Rid of Gnats. You’ll often find
gnats swarming around houseplants and fruit or sticky food. Thankfully, there are many
ways to get rid of them. You will need Liquid soap Plastic spray bottle Cider vinegar Cup
or bowl Cigarettes Sticky trap Gnat fogger Citronella candles and vodka or rubbing alcohol
(optional). Step 1. If you have an infested plant, water it with a mixture of 2 tablespoons
liquid soap per gallon of water, thoroughly drenching the soil. Then spray the leaves
with the mixture. Try a mixture of ½ cup vodka and 1½ cups water or 1 cup rubbing
alcohol and 1 quart water. Test a small leaf to make sure that the mixture is not harmful
to the plant. Step 2. Put 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar in a small cup or bowl, filling
the rest with water. Place it near a gnat-infested area. The gnats will be attracted to the scent
and will drown. You can place additional traps throughout your home. Step 3. Scatter tobacco
around the area. The nicotine in the tobacco will kill the gnats. Tobacco should not be
used on food, herbs, or plants that produce food and should be used with caution if you
have pets or children. Step 4. Insert a yellow sticky trap into the soil of an infested plant
or near an infested area. Gnats will be attracted to the color and will get stuck on the trap.
Step 5. Use a gnat fogger to eliminate gnats in an outdoor area. Step 6. Light citronella
candles to keep gnats away from outdoor areas. Did you know Mediterranean fruit flies can
infest and destroy an entire citrus crop. Females can lay up to 300 eggs in their lifetime.
