How To Get Rid Of Gnats Outside?

by Jane Green

To get rid of gnats outside, you can try the following methods:

  1. Eliminate any sources of standing water, such as clogged gutters, water-filled containers, or low-lying areas that collect water.
  2. Use a commercial insect spray specifically designed to kill gnats. Be sure to follow the instructions on the label and pay attention to the wind direction when applying.
  3. Use a vinegar trap to attract and trap the gnats. Mix equal parts apple cider vinegar and water in a small container and add a drop or two of dish soap. Place the container near the gnats.
  4. Keep windows and doors closed to prevent gnats from entering the house.
  5. Use a bug zapper or a yellow light trap to attract and kill gnats at night.
  6. Use a pheromone trap, this kind of trap is specially designed to attract and trap gnats.
  7. Keep an eye on any fruit or vegetables you grow in your yard, as they can attract gnats if left to ripen on the vine or tree.
  8. Keep the lawn and garden free of debris and dead leaves.
  9. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, if you have a lawn use a grass type that is drought-tolerant
  10. Use a natural repellent, such as peppermint oil, citronella, or eucalyptus oil, to deter gnats.

Note: If the problem persists, it may be necessary to call a pest control professional for further assistance.
