Summer = fruit flies

It is lovely weather.  The windows are open and a breeze is blowing through the house.  I love to bring home marvelous fresh fruit from the grocery store after a winter of apples, pears, and bananas.  Unfortunately, it would seem I also bring home fruit flies from the market.  Or perhaps they come in through the screened windows.  Whatever the case, I am not impressed!

Last year a friend told me her secret to getting rid of fruit flies.  It works so well that I thought I would share it with you.  Certainly I can’t be the only one slapping at the little buggers.  Man, they are fast!

Get out a small glass jar and put an inch or two of apple cider vinegar in the bottom.  Place plastic wrap over the top of it, fastening it with a rubber band.  Poke some small slits in the top.  If you find the fruit flies are not attracted to this, your holes need to be enlarged.  If the fruit flies are escaping, then your holes are too large.

Let me know how this works for you.
