I have 4 guinea pigs. I have had them for a year and I never had gnats and now I do. I don't know what to do and I don't want to get rid of them. I love them to death.

Keep the cage as clean as possible and remove food bits between meals.

My 11 year old daughter has two boar guineas that are very tolerant of each other, but not of their other roommates... gnats, gnats, and more gnats! I have tried everything from vinegar to hairspray to over the counter pesticides (not sprayed near the cage of course!) Help! Surely something can get rid of them! Thank you.

Something in the cage is attracting them. Scrub the cages, food containers, water bottles, all out.


Dispose outside of any dirty liter. It may just be that the cages are not kept clean enough.

Put a bowl of apple cider vinegar, water, a little sugar and a few drops of Blue Dawn next to the cage. They will drown in there.

I have been fighting the gnat problem for 5 years now. I have 2 guinea pigs. I found what I save my old wine bottles and put a small amount of wine in the empty bottles with a drop of dish soap. I keep them all over the house. It takes a few weeks but it realky works!
