What to do about Fruit Flies?
Now that we are all preparing lots of fresh fruits and veggies, we find
fruit flies have invaded our homes. What are we to do? Here are various
remedies that you can try depending on which is easiet:
1.I have found that leaving a glass soda bottle with the last sip of
in it will catch a lot of them,. Cream soda works really well for this.
4. Take a small zip lock baggie, and add some fruit cut up in it (bananas and watermelon) Leave it open on the kitchen counter overnight, with a light on low in the kitchen, and the next morning there they will be eating the fruit...so I zipped up the bag and took them outside... I had to repeat this for 3-4 days, but then they were all gone. Also, make sure your "garbage disposal" in your sink is clean and ran often...they like to nest in it! Bleach down it can help.
5. Fruit flies can be a real nuisance. To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass fill it 1/2" with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dishwashing liquid, mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!
In areas where we don't want ants to go, I dilute Avon Skin so Soft 1:3 and spray a border around the area I am trying to protect. Works like a charm!
We use both Diatomaceous Earth and Eucalyptus
to repel scorpions from our aviaries.
