    gnat traps. Find a glass jar you can part with...put vinager the apple cider stuff or a piece of fruit in the bottom. Make a funnel from a piece of paper leaving a small opening for the funnel end. They go in, don’t come out.

    First if you have any plants inside make sure they are re-potted in fresh soil as fungus gnats lay eggs in the soil. Use bowls of apple cider vinegar,cover with saran wrap and poke small holes in the wrap.

    First, eliminate what is attracting them! Compost? Fruit on the counter? Stop giving the gnats/fruit flies food and a place to breed. We had a terrible infestation earlier this year—couldn’t find anyplace in the kitchen that attracted them—then discovered a couple cans of fruit which had swollen and exploded on a basement shelf. A mess to clean up, but we got rid of the source. We put up fly tape; cheap and very sticky ribbons of resin-coated paper that spiral out of a small tube. Not appropriate for a kitchen, but worked well in an out-of -the-way place.

    Put dawn liquid & apple cider vinegar in a small dish. Stir & make bubbles. gnats light on the bubble & can't get off.

    If it's from indoor pots your soil may be too wet. Let it dry out. Do the above recommendations too.

    Fill a bottle with sugar water or something sweet like kero syrup and set it where the ants are. This will draw them in to the sweet mixture, and they die.
