Fruity Flies

These are my nemeses.

I went a majority of the summer without ANY fruit flies (or regular flies) in my home, and then, sometime during the week of July 4th, while we vacationed, they invaded. I left nothing on the counter, no food out, nada. Apparently there was some minuscule bit of food left in the drain or something. We got back from Iowa and a neat little family of ffs had made their happy home in and around my kitchen!

Since then, it's been an uphill battle to get rid of them. I've exterminated most, but they've found a life source somewhere that I'm not identifying. Gross, gross, gross. I also learned way more than I ever wanted to know about them on wikipedia.

But as disgusted as I am with my minor infestation, it doesn't hold a candle to what my blogger friend Jordan found in her laundry room. If you want a good case of the heebie jeebies, check it out.

Eeek! I'm off to make a vinegar funnel trap. I know you're all jealous of my exciting evening activities.

Hi! Fruit flies are a major stress factor for me. I HATE getting those. If you haven't already, pour bleach down your drain.

Ish. I will!!! My vinegar trap caught at least 20! I didn't even know I HAD that many :P

Thanks Jordan!!
