Now I had nothing against fruit flies because they are pretty harmless, they just bug the heck out of me. We eat a lot of fruit, and compost, so we have pieces of fruit lying around all the time. The fruit flies come out of nowhere and suddenly, there are several of them around the sink. You can’t catch them because they’re tiny, but I keep finding them in my OJ. I’ve tried fly paper, but they don’t stick to it. They are a little slower than house flies, so I decided to make a trap. It’s not perfect, but it works pretty well.
I simply take a yogurt container and deposit fruit leftovers into it. Within an hour the flies are all over it, so I quickly cover the cup and trap the flies. I then take them outside and release them. It sounds so archaic, but it works. In the past, when I came downstairs in the morning, the flies would bum me out, and now their numbers are greatly reduced. I’m still amazed how they keep showing up, but that’s what flies do, right?
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
