Got fruit flies?

I do.

I know–I understand scientifically–that fruit attracts fruit flies.  But there is a part of me that still believes wholeheartedly that fruit generates fruit flies. Because first, there are no fruit flies.  Then there is fruit.  Then there ARE fruit flies.

Fruit flies.  Beginning to sound like ridiculous words.

Anyway.  Here’s how you get rid of them. 

Apple cider vinegar, in a jar, a few holes poked in the lid.  Put the lid on the jar, and place it near the fruit fly epicenter. They’ll crawl in and won’t be able to get out. 

Dispose of contents of jar at some point.

You’re welcome.

  2. Eureka! I have found you! I’ve always loved your musings, but some how life got in the way, and I stopped reading you! Many regrets! I must comment on the fruit flies – I have had them, too, this year. Tried the vinegar thing and I would give it a C+ for effectiveness. RATS! I just walked by the bananas and there was another blasted FRUIT FLY!
