  • I usually get them at the end of summer. I have a twofold attack:

    1) Get a 6 pack of Corona. (Bottles) I'm not kidding. Drink one, and leave just a cm of beer in the bottom. put a few drops of dish detergent in there. Then take a piece of computer paper and roll it up like a funnel. Stick it in the bottle, with about 1 and half inches in the bottle. Tape it there. Set it out where you see them the most. Wait a few days and drink the rest of the beer, saving the bottles.

    2) If you insist on not drinking beer, get some red wine. Pour a little in a small juice glass. add dish detergent, cover with saran wrap (tightly!) then poke holes with a needle in the saran wrap. Drink the rest of the wine. You won't care about the FF anymore. :)

    3) If alcohol isn't your thing, use red wine vinegar.

    4) try apple cider vinegar also/ in conjunction.
