    Gnats!!

    After weeks of them just getting worse and following all the suggestions of how to get rid of them, I think I finally found the answer!!

    Spray them with hair spray!!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I've used hair spray for bugs too. Kind of makes you wonder what it's doing to us.

    I use whatever is in the closest spray bottle to kill flying insects, except for wasps. It might take a couple of sprays, but usually kills whatever I am aiming at. Never thought of hairspray, but will be sure to try that next time. Thanks for the hint.

    Years ago, there was a huge spider in the bathtub and no bug spray around. DD and I used hair spray to kill it. Don't know if the hair spray killed it or if we just drowned the bugger.

    I use whatever is handy to spray on flys, small bugs of any kind. Windex, bathroom cleaner ,hairspray, any spray usually gets them. For big bugs I run for the Raid (unscented).
