You have to find the source. If they are breeding inside, usually it is linked to water-just like fruit flies. Even potted plants can breed small flies once the water stagnates. They have a short life span so dry out the breeding area. If you spray can them, they breed so fast it will be the same in one or 2 days. If they are definitely from outside and an ongoing problem, an ILT wall mounted will suck up any that manage to get in. Almost all small flies from outdoors go for UV. Fruit and phorid/moth aka "bathroom flies" (usually from inside) don't.

This is a classic sign of overwatering.


Fungus gnats can be a nuisance to some people. They can be eliminated by the use of a common insect repellent.


Repot your plants every six months and use yellow sticky pads. They are hard to get rid of though. Try sprying the soil area with Neem Oil, it will smother them.


There are several reasons that a home may have gnats. Gnats are attracted to overripe fruits and vegetables that are left out on the counter. That could include tomatoes, bananas and peaches. Gnats also like to be in and around over-watered plants. They also like to be around decayed food. An example might be food that is stuck to the side or bottom of the trash container. Gnats multiply quickly, so it is important to find the source to get rid of them.

You're probably better off taking the plant outside and throwing it into the compost: gnats and other bugs can be gotten rid of with a variety of insecticides or "soaps" for sale at any hardware or garden store, but compare the cost of that to the cost of a new plant. You want to avoid the gnats spreading inside, too, which is another good reason to be rid of the plant.


leave out a glass of red wine or vinegar

Gnats come from eggs laid by other gnats. The eggs are so small that you may not know they are there. Potted plants and drains are the most common areas in a house where you would find them.


Try using commercial chemical products for gnats which are available at supermarkets and hardware stores as they are aa reliable source of spray which help in killing flying insects. You can also make use of fogging product. You can use this option only if you are experiencing severe infestation of gnats. You need to leave your house for one full day after applying the product. If you have some vinegar, try using it to get rid of gnats. Get a jar and fill it with vinegar and cover it with lid. Poke small holes in the lid and place it in the gnat area. It should help. Hope this helps.
