|Cause and effect: trap beside lure! bwahahaha!|
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR TRAP:
Pour apple cider vinegar into a jar. Use a piece of wax paper, saran wrap, or even newspaper (any kind of paper, really) and affix it to the top of the jar to seal it -- use a rubber band if you don't have a canning jar like I used. Punch holes in it -- toothpick size holes are too small, but shish-ka-bob stick holes are totally gnat-sized! Wait and watch. Soon your jar will look like mine: a little gnat floating right in the center. YAY! [sorry about that!]
The following trap is very effective, but not pet or people friendly. I've never had a problem with Bhu wanting to drink alcohol, but he is a very intelligent kitteh.
RED WINE TRAP:
Based on personal observation, gnats LOVE red wine -- especially cabernet sauvignon! This is the simplest trap of all. Just put some red wine in a shot glass or small jar, add a drop of dish soap and leave it anywhere. To be honest, you don't even need the soap. They will drown but they will be so, so happy on the way to gnat heaven!
|Zzzzzz. Purraying for the little gnats who lose their lives due to gluttony.|
PATTY: Bhu is having cabin fever today. It's hot, hot, hot and way humid so we are hanging out inside this afternoon, hoping to stay cool. xoxo
