    Vinegar and a little bit of dawn dish liquid in a small container
  • Add some vinegar to a bowl. They are attracted to it and will drown.

    I keep a bowl with cider vinegar, water and a squirt of dish detergent. Attracts them and drowns them. Refresh it as needed or when it starts looking grungy from the dead bugs. You don't need a large container. I use mismatched bowls for this, especially if they are cute.

    Put up fly strips where they are worse. Check house plants to see if they are where they are coming from. If they are, you need to repot your plants with new soil, rinse of the plants, and clean the pots real well. Get gnat killer that you set out. Make sure any fruit or vegetable that are kept on the counter are washed as soon as you get them in the house. The frequently come in the house from produce.

    I like the old fashion fly paper in the round containers you tack into the ceiling. They also make a clear version now that you put on the window glass.

    Set out a bowl of vinegar on the countertop.....it attracts the knats and then kills them. Usually fresh fruit like apples and bananas attract the knats so if you don't want them around, don't leave fresh fruit out on countertops. Over ripe potato's also attract them.

    Pour about 1/4 c. apple cider in a empty soda can, add about a Tbsp. of diced apple or banana,and shake around, they can get in but they can't get out. It's not instant but it works.

    Really ripe apple or banana works best
