If these gnats/fruit flies are buzzing you, wash all produce as you bring it into the house, the eggs are on it and will hatch soon after, then refrigerate the fruit after the wash-except bananas-keep at room
temperature. Next clean you kitchen sink drain with 1/2 cup baking soda and 1 cup white vinegar, when the fizzing stops, rinse well with hot water. For the flying ones, I use a sticky pad from Walmart-the ones for catching mice, just peel off the plastic cover and lay flat. Put a small piece of fruit, about the size of a dime in the center of the pad. The pests will land on it to never bother you again.
Best to you.
The gnats are coming from the soil in your plants and every time you water them they tend to come up out of the soil. Water the plants with a bit of soap mixed in water and cover the surface of the soil or purchase the fungus gnat powder from your gardening store.
A trick I learned about bananas on keeping the gnats down, take some clear plastic wrap and wrap the end of the banana stems with it to seal it off. It works great, I can buy bananas again and not worry about gnats!
