Do you know what this is?
This awful dreaded creature along with many of his annoying relatives vacations every year in my kitchen and I can't stand them. Say hello to Drosophila melanogaster. You may know him by his nick name, fruit fly. As I said, every summer, these guys have a field day in my kitchen. I'm not quite sure what it is that I have in there that is attracting them so but I can't stand them. They hang out by my kitchen sink and fly all around while I'm trying to do dishes. I discovered one thing that helps get rid of them and it's cheap and easy. All you need is some vinegar and dish soap. I take a shallow dish and fill it half way with vinegar then add a couple drops of dish soap and leave it sitting out. They are attracted to the vinegar and when they land in the dish they die. Of course you end up with a really gross dish full of vinegar and dead bugs but they wash down the sink quite nicely.
I can't believe I even did a scrapbook layout of these nasty guys.
You'll pardon me if I don't offer a free template with this one...lol
Have a great day everyone and may the fruit flys stay away from your house.
