Bugs, Be Gone! These Are the Best Ways to Get Rid of Gnats Permanently

Almost anything can attract a gnat and once you get one, it’s all the more likely he’ll bring around his little gnat friends. After all, they found something they like in your house. Whether it’s a damp area, dirty dishes, an open trash can, or overwatered plants, gnats have a way of descending on a household until you both reach a stalemate.

And it’s fun for literally no one. Except maybe the gnats themselves. And getting rid of gnats isn’t that fun either.

Nobody wants to live with bugs, especially gross little gnats, so naturally, people are looking for different remedies—whether they be natural, at-home remedies or the most efficient kinds of spray or foggers (for outdoor infestations)—that will rid their home of gnats once and for all. But before we get into removal techniques, it’s crucial that you correctly identify the little bugger terrorizing your kitchen. Because there are different tactics for getting rid of gnats, drain flies, fruit flies, and other pests with wings, you want to be absolutely sure of what you’re dealing with. That way, you can properly get rid of the pests once and for all.

I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
