    there are knot traps at most grocery stores or home imprmovement centers. The ones I have look a little like a small yellow apple. We reuse ours when the attractant wears out by adding a little wine to the trap and the boats are attracted to the wine also!

    Yes wine! Put a glass of wine on the counter....they love it and drown!

    Put some wine in small glasses, wrap with plastic wrap. Secure with rubber bands, and poke several holes in the plastic small holes only. Put the glasses around the area where the nats are. Be patient and wait, the nats smell the wine, go in by the holes, can't get out, and they die. If you have old wine that's even better. Leave them out for several days.

    Liquid nails worked well for me - there's also Elmer's wood glue but I had less success with that. You can also use a finishing nailer and wood putty to fill the holes afterward.

    Do you have plants...they could be fungus gnats in which case the plants should be re-potted in fresh soil and sprayed with horticultral oil

    This is sure to help.
    Put some apple cider vinegar in a disposable cup. Drop in some dawn dish washing liquid to break up the surface adhesion. Then just walk away. In a few hours they will have drown. Hope that helps.
