The summer gnats have been horrendous this year! It's so irritating when you're watching TV or working on your computer and gnats are buzzing around your head ruining your concentration. We worked with the shop door open all day yesterday and the gnats just seemed to be congregating inside. So before we left, we did something so easy, but so effective, I just had to share!
I poured a small amount of sweet white wine (Riesling to be exact) into a plastic cup and then I added a few drops of dish soap.
I did not cover the cup. I just set the glass out on the tabletop overnight and LOOK!
YAY!!! That is less than 12 hours of gnat catching!
I've tried other methods in the past, such as apple cider vinegar and the store-bought peaches. Nothing has worked this well!
I love creating displays in my shop so much! On Saturday, a large farm table sold so I had a nice big hole smack dab in the center of the store. I couldn't wait to pull together a new display in the open spot. This is the first display you see when entering from the shop next door so I like to keep it fresh and new. This time around, I opted for a shabby creamy dreamy look using some of my favorite things in a neutral palette.
