I’m pretty excited tonight, as my new gnat trap arrived in the mail today.
I make smoothies every morning. And I buy what organic fruit I can.
But along with the territory comes gnats. And the last batch of bananas I picked up at Whole Foods brought a bunch in.
And because I’m using fruit every single day, the problem doesn’t go away so easily.
Thank goodness gnats don’t bite, but still! Done with them! Want them OUT.
I looked into some of the homemade traps. Make a paper funnel, stick it in a little glass or vase with apple cider vinegar and a drop of dish soap. And supposedly catch all the gnats.
Nope, didn’t work for me. And for my friends who’ve used it, it seems they never get more than a couple gnats when they do it.
So I finally took to Amazon, the King of Product Reviews. And I found a trap with great reviews from a company called FlyFix.
So I ordered it and it arrived earlier today.
However, tonight we had friends over for dinner. And little gnats visited everyone at the dinner table. Ugh. Thankfully our friends are really down to earth, but everyone was clapping, trying to kill the buggers. Not my preference for entertainment. We’d been so busy getting ready, that I hadn’t opened the package or even thought about it.
Finally I remembered the package and ran to get it. We cracked that sucker open, poured some apple cider vinegar into it, closed it up and set it on the table. The instructions state to allow a few hours for the gnats to find the trap, but in less than an hour, it’d already caught a couple! 🙂
So I’m thrilled. This is already as good as trying the DIY method. So as far as I see, it’s looking promising. And it blends in with the apples well!
I can’t wait to see how many gnats it’s trapped by morning.

I would like to know if it works, too (past the first few hours you described). We have gnat problems and you are right, the homemade traps don’t work that well.
Agreed, please post a follow-up! The suspense is killing me! 🙂
