Fruitflies

I have seen fruitfly help requests on here.
I got a major case of fruit flies this week. I tried and tried to get rid of them. This afternoon I closed off the kitchen and bombed. I think it worked. I will know for sure tomorrow morning.

  • Take apple cider vinegar in a cup and put some seran wrap over it with a rubber band and poke little holes in it. they are attractd to the vinegar and get in the holes, but cant get back out. Ive cought thousands this summer and fall (living in KY) it works better than anything else I have tried.

  • My friend just told me that her son left out a jar of opened sweet pickles and the next morning it was full of fruit flies and two house flies and there were no flies left flying around. I think that is worth a shot, I mean there are no harmful chemicals involved.
