How to catch fruit flies


fruitflies.jpgFor the last few days we’ve been having fruit flies pestering us. First they were after some fruit, then after some strawberry jam, and then after whatever they could find. Annoying.
Last night I unwittingly left out an opened bottle of Charles Shaw Sauvignon Blanc and woke up this morning to a fruit-fly-free kitchen. It seems that the little fruit flies are fatally attracted to this wine. A waste of $2, of course, but at least now I know how to get rid of fruit flies the next time they attack.

    Did you know vinegar and fruit gnats go together well too? If you leave out a bowl of apple cider vinegar, they’ll fly right to it and drown! A drop of dish detergent helps to keep them from getting back out. It’ll do the same thing for much cheaper 🙂
