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.
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.
