How Can You Create a Gnat Trap With Vinegar?

To create a gnat trap, combine apple cider vinegar with liquid dish soap, and pour the solution into an empty glass. Use a piece of paper to make a funnel, and secure the funnel with tape. Place the funnel in the opening of the glass.

  1. Gather the needed materials

    The materials needed include apple cider vinegar, liquid dish soap, an empty glass, paper and tape.

  2. Pour the mixture into the glass

    Start by measuring 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, and pour it into the glass. Next, add three drops of liquid dish soap to the apple cider vinegar.

  3. Make a paper funnel

    Tear off three 1-inch pieces of tape, and set them aside. Take a letter-sized piece of paper, and lay it on a flat surface. Fold the paper horizontally to make a funnel shape. Grab the reserved pieces of tape, and secure the edges of the paper to create a funnel.

  4. Set up the gnat trap

    Place the paper funnel on the top of the glass. Make sure the end of the funnel does not touch the liquid to ensure that gnats are unable to climb out. Place the gnat trap where gnats are present, and replace the vinegar and dish soap solution every two days.
