My mommy is having some serious problems at her house, and she wants me to find her help!
karen, I tried to call the station this morning but couldn’t get through. Have your mom put out a couple glasses of wine, just half a glass “I used red but, I’m sure anything sweet will work”. Also put funnels in the glasses and they will fly in and can’t get out. This worked for me and haven’t seen a fruit fly since. God luck.
Hey Karen, I feel for your mom! Fruit flies make me bonkers. One easy way to get rid of the ones flying in your face is to vac them up. They are such lightweights they get sucked right into the hose. So maybe with you getting rid of all the fruit there will be no new ones but you
just need to get rid of the ones flying around. They usually land in the same spots so just keep the vac hose out and keep checking that area. Tell your mom not to trip over it! Good luck!
I checked with food service where I work. They say pour bleach down your garbage disposal, then hot water. If a dish washer is connected to the garbage disposal, you may need to do a thorough clean of your dishwasher to disposal connection area, using whatever you usually clean that with. Toni
This works like a charm! Have your mom take a cup, plastic container or something similar. Put about an inch of a sweet alcoholic beverage in the cup– they like wine, margaritas, wine coolers, that sort of thing. This is important: add some dishwashing detergent to it, no need to stir. Cover the cup with plastic wrap, and secure it with a rubber band or tape. Poke a hole in the top. Within a day or two, all of the fruit flies will be in the cup drunk, unable to fly because of the soap, and soon dead. I had a huge fruit fly problem and this worked fabulously!
If she does this today, her house will be fruit fly free in time for the kick-off!
