The sun and fun that accompany summer are what make us all happy this time of year. But with the good, ineveitably comes the bad. Enter: green hair, sun burns and the most bedevilling of creatures, the FRUIT FLIES.
Fruit flies are seriously the very worst part about summer.
I used to put out a glass of red wine to catch those nasty buggers, but why waste perfectly good wine when there’s a better method?!
Try putting this simple concoction into a little dish:
- ½ tsp water
- 2 squirts of dish soap
- 1-1 ½ TBSP of apple cider vinegar
You’ll also need to make sure that any exposed fruit is in the fridge or fully covered and that all the counters are wiped down. Those pesky suckers will find even the smallest trace of fruit and attack it. But…if everything else is put away, your apple cider vinegar concoction will do the trick, I promise.
