Re: fruit flies?!

We've had a major fruit fly problem since the last batch of bananas (no more bananas in our house!!!!!). What I did was get a Ball jar, put about 1/2 inch of apple cider vinegar in the bottom, made a paper funnel that I put in the top, and left it on the counter. They get in but most of the time, they can't figure out how to get out and eventually drown. It's been a drastic improvement, though they're not all gone yet.

Also, make sure your garbage pail is covered and that the drains are clear in the kitchen. These are breeding grounds for them.

I hate fruit flies!!!!!
