Making a Gnat Trap
I think most everyone in our area are experiencing a problem with gnats in the house. They are terrible this year. I have two gnat traps that I use to catch them. They go right to it and it keeps the population of those pesky gnats down. I empty the trap weekly and start all over.
- small jar - a jelly jar works very well
- Glad cling wrap
- rubber band
- apple cider vinegar
- scissors to trim excess Glad wrap on jelly jar
- sharp object to punch small hole in middle of the plastic over the top of the jar
- Pour vinegar in jar to approximately 1/3 full.
- Pull off a sheet of Glad Wrap and place it over the top of the jar.
- While pulling the Glad Wrap tight over the top of the jar, so there are no wrinkles, place a rubber band around top of the jar to hold the Glad Wrap in place.
- For neatness, use scissors to trim the excess wrap off.
- Press the loose wrap around the jar.
- Using a sharp object, punch one small hole in the middle of the Glad Wrap for the gnats to smell the vinegar and enter for a drink. They go in the hole, take a delightful swim in the vinegar and can't get out.
