How to Eliminate Fruit Flies

With summer comes more bugs…and flies. I can’t stand these little fruit flies that seem to be multiplying. They are so annoying. It’s gotten to the point that I have to keep everything covered and watch my food as I eat to make sure they aren’t landing on it. As I’m preparing a meal I have to stick things in the microwave or oven just to keep it protected while I am doing something else.Eliminate Fruit Flies
Pinterest¬†of course, saves the day and has a remedy for getting rid of these annoying fruit flies. It does take some time to get rid of them but this method does work. I keep a glass cup filled with vinegar and a drop of soap in the pantry, near the fruit bowl and the trash can. It’s pretty amazing how many fruit flies I will find floating in the cups after a few days.
