Ok everyone. While I was visiting my parents, my apartment became infested with gnats and ants. My apartment complex got rid of the ants but refuses to do anything about the gnats. I have tried everything I can find online but I am at a loss.
I have tried:
Vinegar bowls: It kills a lot of them but it isn’t working much. They are still everywhere.
Cleaning the drains: I tried vinegar, clorox, baking soda, etc.
Rubbing alcohol and water: I tried spraying it on them, it seemed to kill the ones hit directly, but there are too many to get to that.
A flying insects spray bought at TSC: This worked for a good amount of them, but now it doesn’t. Plus I have to take Grasy (my cat) and cover Fyre (my fish) and sit outside for 15 minutes. Ever wrapped a cat in a blanket and sat outside with her for 15 minutes in the Texas heat?
Fly strips: Both regular and dipped in vinegar: This again catches a bunch of them. But it can only be hung in one spot of the kitchen, because of the fact that it has to be on a hook and there is no good place in my house to hang it besides the kitchen, so it doesn’t catch most of them.
I have cleaned the dishwasher, the oven, the microwave oven, everything. My house has been sprayed with clorox (yes it makes me sick because I’m allergic to it, but I had to handle it,) rubbing alcohol, and everything possible. The house is spotless, except for the daggum gnats!
I can’t eat in my apartment, I can’t use the bathroom, I can’t sleep in my bed, without them swarming and attacking me. Homework is hard to do even. And they bite and leave itching, red spots everywhere. Please, someone, anyone help.
I dont know how they got there. I just want them gone!
Thanks in advance guys!
Yes I have a cat and a fish, but it doesnt swarm around either of them or their stuff. (Although if they land on my fish’s bowl he eats them lol.) As for a gun, I dont own one so. Not that I am against them, just dont have one. And I dont think the complex will be happy with me shooting them lol.
