Anyone know a way to control or eliminate the little flies that hatch from potted plants?

Sorry - my post might have been misleading. I meant to emphasize that my chams have zero chance of getting near a trap. I like the carnivorous plants too but haven’t been able to find any locally.
I ordered my SunDew's online, they shipped packed in a baggie with the roots wrapped in wet paper towels, they came with the pots and moss to plant them in, I planted them two days ago and so far they have snagged about 30 gnats!!!! LOVE THEM!!

I got my plants here, they came with pots and moss and everything needed as well as super detailed instructions on how to pot them and care for them, they have already started sprouting new leaves and I just potted them two days ago!! So far they are working like a charm!!! I will probably order some different ones just because this website has some super cool plants!! https://predatoryplants.com/

Thank you! I just ordered two sundews for $31 shipped. I like the $5 flat rate shipping!

With all respect to you, don’t you think if someone was having problems with them, that they’d want them gone completely?
I agree... nobody wants pests flying around their house. I had that problem too i was actually wondering what they came from. Now i know... they are seriously ANNOYING
 
Sundews probably wouldn't do well in the enclosure without a lot of light and proper soil. I went through a soil gnat problem a few years ago and can speak for the carnivorous plants... I had THOUSANDS and within a week 2 butterworts and 2 sundews wiped them out. Sundews are the best IME, but even pitchers will do a pretty good job.
Yes sundews was about to say same thing if you listen to chameleon breeder podcast on carnivorous plants he talks specifically about plants for this. just have to make a shelf close to basking area of your cage as you say they need lots of light
