If you have birds and feed them fruit clean up the old thrown away fruit immediately. Do not let any fruit layout bananas, peaches, strawberries, etc. All will draw the little monsters. Don't have any open containers of orange juice, cokes, anything sweet or even water. There are little cardboard fruit moth traps you can buy at the hardware that works quite well.

Camicide was WONDERFUL! BUT you can't find it anymore, anywhere!
Check google for organic solutions.
If you have birds, DO NOT USE ANYTHING AROUND THEM! IT WILL KILL THEM!
Will take a little time and work but you can get rid of the nasty little pests....good luck.

How to get rid of gnats


  • Clean up the living area where the gnats are hanging around. This is usually the kitchen .Take away all garbage, clean the sink disposal, and throw away any food residue.

  • 2

    Spray the counters with a cleaner that contains bleach to discourage gnats. Dry off the counters with paper towels.

    • 3
    • Find out where the gnats are getting into the house. If there are cracks around windows or doors bass seal them. Fix any window or door screens.
Elimination
  • 4

    Pour a cup of ammonia down your sink drains and disposal to coat the inside. Gnats inside the drains will quickly die.

  • 5

    Mix together equal parts apple cider vinegar and dish detergent.

  • 6

    Pour the mixture into small dishes or cups and set them out in the areas where gnats congregate. The gnats will be attracted to the sweetness of the vinegar but will get caught and die in the dish soap.

Prevention
  • 7

    Keep trash cans covered at all times, and empty them every night.

  • 8

    Leave your compost buckets outside. Gnats love vegetables and fruits.

  • 9

    Avoid over watering your plants. Soggy soil attracts gnats

Need home remedy for getting rid of gnats


Get a bottle of wine. Drink 3/4 of it (you deserve it).

Leave the rest in the bottle on the kitchen counter overnight. The gnats will get trapped in the bottle. Or you could put it on the floor and when the gnats collect around the bottle, spray them with insecticide.

How did the gnats get in to the house in the first place? Probably hitchhiked on some fruit you brought home from the grocery store.
