How to get rid of Gnats

Gnats at the most basic level are tiny flying insects that want to feast on your moist, warm flesh.

You can try a spray of tobacco water to get rid of them. To make it, put two tablespoons of cut up dry tobacco in a cup of water and let it boil for 10 minutes. Be careful with this as it is very potent and will smell like smoke!

If you need to stop the gnats from getting in your home use a fly catcher with a sticky surface to cover all outside cracks and crevices.

Gnats cannot crawl back up surfaces so they will carry on until they find another way out or starve to death.

If that doesn’t work then you might want to talk to Pest Control professionals to get rid of them.

Let’s see what you know about gnats:
