 Hot Shot No-Pest Strip

These work very well. you can put them behinds things and no one will know they are there.

The other way is to put out Apple cider vinager in a bowl and put plastic wrap on the bowl with holes poked in it. this works but the other way is faster.

I agree with the mom above. I also put bleach down my drains & I use the waxy fly traps you hang up.

And you add a squirt of dish detergent and mix. It gets rid of the water tension of the solution and makes them drown.

Do you have to use apple cedar vinegar or will any vinegar do? Does the apple attract them?

We've been having a problem with them too. It sucks, we don't even have any fruit lying around.
