Vinegar can be used to get rid of gnats in the form of a vinegar trap. Vinegar traps are easy to make and can be used throughout the home, although they work best near areas where gnats feed and breed. To make a vinegar trap, simple take a bottle or jar with a large opening and fill it with vinegar (preferably white vinegar). Cover the trap, and cut a few small holes into the lid. The vinegar traps will attract the gnats. They are able to crawl into the trap but not make their way back out.
Another method for using vinegar to get rid of gnats is an alternative vinegar trap. This homemade insect trap is simple. Take a bowel and mix a few drops of dishwashing detergent with some vinegar. The vinegar will attract the gnats, and the detergent will help trap them in the bowel.
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.
