Tip Tuesday

Yesterday I was racking my brain trying to think of a tip. I was doing the dishes when I finally thought of something. Of course, my Internet wouldn't bring up my blog. So here it is one day late.

Tip Tuesday
The reason I thought of the tip while I was doing the dishes is because I had to change my fruit fly bait. All the dead little fruit flies were floating in the bait and looking disgusting. Then is dawned on me that you would all probably love this tip. Now, to confess, I have been looking for a way to get rid of fruit flies for years! I've tried a few things that have only kind of worked. But this one works!!

Take a small bowl or dish and put some apple cider vinegar in it. Then squeeze a little bit of liquid dish soap in it. That's it! The fruit flies are attracted to the apple cider vinegar but the soap slicks there wings and they can fly. They sink to their deaths. Change weekly or when the fruit flies cause the soap to float to the top. Yes, it's pretty gross but so are fruit flies.

Where did I find this little gem? Well, I was on Facebook and was reading a friends wall. We apparently he has the same problem and one of his friends gave him the tip. So really I'm passing on a stolen tip. Shhhh, don't tell. Happy hunting!

Oh, if you're on facebook feel free to add me as your friend.

That's sounds about as attractive as the fly tape hanging from our banisters through the summer! That's what we get for building near the mink farm!

Megan's coming to visit in a few days, you should come out! Hee hee!

Do you know how many of you there are on Facebook? I didn't know which one was you. I was going to find you and leave you this comment because you are the only one who would understand... Do you have any good books that you could pass over the back fence? I have to drive 10 minutes to get to a library and I haven't been able to make it this week. I am going through withdrawls!Find me on Facebook!
