    Put a glass of water with a teaspoon of white vinegar next to the fruit dish. Put plastic wrap on top of the cup or glass and puncture a half inch hole in it. The gnats will go in and get caught.

    Are they gnats or fruit flies? Fruit flies are commonly found around ripening fruits and vegetables, whereas gnats are common in warm places and mostly around water. Read here for more info: https://www.thoughtco.com/tips-for-getting-rid-of-fruit-flies-1968422

    Overripe bruised, pierced skins and on bananas the exposed inside of the stem seems to draw them. I find any standing water in sink or anywhere also encourages them.

    THIS WORKS! Put wine in a small glass. Cover with plastic wrap and secure with an elastic band. Poke 5 small holes in the plastic. I would make several glasses and spread them out. Now wait for them to smell the wine. They go to the hole and fall in, and die, they can't get out. This is where you wait a few days. Look in there in the morning, you'll see them. Wash your fruit when you get it home. Good Luck!
