Gnat and White Fly Traps

By sewNsow

I make sticky traps to catch gnats and white flies around my plants. Using yellow paper saucers and plastic lids, plus a small foam brush, I coat the saucers and lids with an auto oil additive called MOTOR HONEY. It is very inexpensive, comes in a small bottle, and can be bought wherever motor oil is sold. I hang the lids and saucers with a hook made from wire or a paper clip. I've even dabbed it on pot edges to trap pesky gnats. It works! Don't put it on too heavily or it will drip.

I also purchased some of those sticky fly strips that unroll and you hang them, they seem to work for gnats better than the flies so I keep them hanging in my sunroom where I keep all my houseplants for the summer. Never any flies on them which is strange for that's what they are suppose to attract. "HMM" Well at least they are good for something, although they work on flies for my daughter but they have hundreds of flies from all the horses and other animals must have the right smell I guess.
