After months of co-existing with these teeny tiny little creatures, I was nearly losing my mind. Well, I was kind of getting used to them. Josh kept reminding me, "Myah, it's not really a big deal." We have a compost keeper in the kitchen, garden produce constantly covering every surface of the kitchen and fridge. It's just part of the season. So, I really did kind of grow to accept it.
However... when a friend would drop in - I hated that I had to justify why they were swatting and batting away gnats, you know?!
Well, I had a dear friend come over the other day and as she was swatting and batting away the veggie gnats - she kindly suggested, "Oh, you just do apple cider vinegar and a few drops of dish soap!" :) Thanks, Jill!! <3
Seriously, it has worked very well. Better than the several other strategies I have tried.
I cleaned all surfaces, stored as much as I could in the fridge, freezer and pantry and set up a few traps around the hot spots.
Because when they settle into a glass of red wine I pour at the end of a long day - that's just not acceptable. You are not welcome in that trap. No way!
