But, as you may remember from this post I did, my kids playing outside means a lot of in and out, meaning the back door spends more time opened than it does shut.
Which means gnats fly in!
It is so gross to see them swarming around my kitchen, but they are so small and fast, how do you get rid of them?
I combined a few ideas from the internet and created a very simple trap:
- I poked a few small holes in the lid of an empty, clean coffee can
- dropped a small piece of banana inside the can
- put the lid on and set it on my kitchen counter.
- About 4 hours later I carried the can outside, called the kids over (might as well make a science lesson out of the deal!), and opened the lid.
The gnat trap works for me!!!
