    Paula do you mean fruit flies, if so I make a plastic container with a lid that I poke holes in and fill with white vinegar and dawn dish detergent and leave on my counter. Works great 🤩

    Thanks Maria. I saw a recipe with apple cider vinegar and dish detergent and one other ingredient I can't remember on Hometalk. I'll do what you suggested. Whatever works, right?!

    How to Make Get Rid of Annoying Gnats

    • Add 1 capful of Apple cider vinegar to small bowl of water.
    • Add a couple of drops of dish soap and stir. Place on counter beside sink.
    • The fruit gnats can't resist the apple cider in the vinegar and the soap kills them.
    • Repeat fresh each day until they are all gone.

    This is amazing to attract them. Sour beer.. They love it! Use a wine glass and carefully and slowly cover it when they are in there to trap them. Now maybe dish soap added would kill them but I think I tried that and the sour beer by itself worked better. You will have to experiment with what works best.

    Let the dirt in all of your house plants dry out since this is where most gnats come from.
