GNATS! Horrible in summer and STILL here in winter!
Amanda on Jan 05, 2018Hi Sophie. They might be fruit flies. Try putting apple cider vinegar in smaller bowls. Then add a few drops of dish soap and just enough water to make the soap start to bubble. They fruit flies are attracted to the apple cider vinegar but get trapped in the soap. You should start to see them in the bowls after a few hours. Good Luck!Helpful Reply

GrandmasHouseDIY on Jan 05, 2018Hi there, in my 100 year old farmhouse I heat with wood so, inevitably it seems the wood I bring in also brings in flies. Because of the fly issue I ended up putting up a fly strip (I know they're so gross and ugly etc) and darn if it didn't work great on the fruit flies too!Helpful Reply
Eroque022810 on Jan 05, 2018Do they linger or seem to be always by a specific area? If so maybe something dead in wall? Although my aunt had some really bad ones one summer and it turned out that the person upstairs had a few rotten potatoes that he was unaware of under his sink. Got rid of them and problem was solved. Does your home have a root cellar? Check that throughly for a dead animal and or rotten veggie that was brought in by an animal during the summer.Helpful Reply
DesertRose on Jan 05, 2018Is it gnats or fruit flies? Simple Green will kill fruit flies if you spray your sinks and all drains and put up all fruit in container or refrigeratorHelpful Reply
