Ridding My House of Tiny Non-flying Insects?

How do I kill tiny bugs that I keep finding everywhere? They look like fruit flies, but don't fly. They seem to be around the house in food areas, but also in non-food areas. They are easy to catch. They don't jump and they don't bite me.

You basically have two choices for this. You can put out some sticky flypaper to trap them on or use a spray to kill them with. I would use the sticky flypaper or make a homemade bug trap to trap them with. I have made some of these in the past and they work very well. Here is a site that can help you make one to trap the bugs in your home. www.instructables.com/.../

Hi,

Sometimes these little no-see-ums are attracted to water and they like anywhere that is damp. Many times the come from potted plants, if there is a damp area in the bottom part of the planter. They will fly into other rooms. In order to get rid of them I would get rid of any moisture in the area. I have had success with buying Listerene mouthwash, or even vinegar and spraying them. Either way, they will be clean ad have fresh breath!

You need to find the nest. Try to see where they are coming from. The nest could be inside or outside. Make sure all food is sealed up and water leaks are fixed.

There is a sticky fly tape that you can hang,this attracts them,and they cling to it and stay. It has a hanging tread on it.Clears home fast, then throw away.

I purchase Dual Sided Yellow Sticky Traps from Amazon for my plants (indoors) and wow am I shocked how many little flies there are as none are visible to my eye! You can try those.

Maybe fungus gnats. Use sticky fly paper or keep washing down the area with cleaner.
