So we just got back from vacation to a house SWARMING with fruit flies. I don't know where the little nuisances came from or even bred while we were away, since I was SOOOO careful to throw all the food out and take out all the garbage...but alas, they are all over the place.
So I did some asking around and found out that you can lure them to their death by drowning them in vinegar. You put vinegar in a jar, place foil with holes tightly over the top, and when they come to investigate, they drown.
Well APARENTLY no one informed the fruit flies in our household that this is the plan. They have been hanging out on top of the foil, having a little party and laughing at me.
I hate them. I really do.
So, I came up with a plan- a genius plan. I found a different way to trap them.
Pretty crafty, right? They fly up in there and then I trap them and take them waaaaaaaay outside and release them. I would like to squish them all but I really can't.
I took this after I emptied it once- there are a few in there and some that actually drowned. Mission accomplished.
Pray for me that they all fall for my genius trap. I am so creeped out by these things I can hardly stand it.
