There’s nothing worse than being pestered by pesky gnats on a summer’s eve. But what if you had to ward off thousands — yes THOUSANDS — of those little critters? After watching this video and seeing what a giant horde of gnats looks like, we’d probably just give up and die, TBH.

Somehow the person in this video crafted a gnat trap, capable of trapping an incredible amount of the small flies. Lucky for us, the gnat-catcher decided to film his gnat haul and now we won’t be able to sleep or at least five days, give or take.

Talk about skin-crawling grossness! Like, why do this many gnats exist?

It’s one thing to visually take in the amount of bugs in that bag. But why oh why did the gnat-catcher have to stick their BARE HAND into the gnat bag??? (We seriously cannot wrap our minds around this.)

We need to go take a shower.

If you don’t want to put up with gnats, but are certainly not looking to amass thousands upon thousands of them in a heavy-duty gnat machine, you can actually create your own gnat traps with ingredients you probably already own!

These insects are attracted to vinegar. Pour a small amount of apple cider vinegar in the bottom of a jar or dish. Cover the top of the jar with plastic wrap and poke several holes in the plastic wrap, so the gnats and fruit flies can crawl in and get trapped!


Now that we’ve seen what a gnats on gnats on gnats look like, let’s nip bugs in the bud before we, all of a sudden, have thousands to deal with!
