  • take the trash out every day. clean you sink, make sure its not too hot in the kitchen and dont leave any fruits outside (outside of the fridge).make sure you didnt drop anything under the cabinets ect.

  • ugh I hate fruitflies they are so bad in the summer. I have had the sticky stuff hanging from the ceiling to catch them many times. There is some homemade ingredient recipes to put in jars and it traps them. http://www.oisat.org/control_methods/physical_methods/fruit_fly_traps.html

  • I take a small disposable cup and add a bit of wine or apple cider vinegar, I think any kind of sweet juice will work. I set it on my window sill and they fly into their death.
    I live in wine country, so we have this problem every fall. It's frustrating.

  • A cup of coffee always seems to capture them. Leave one out and they will gravitate towards it.
