Fruit Fly Trap

As it warms up in my area, I am already starting to notice fruit flies in the kitchen. I certainly don’t miss having hem around in cooler winter months! They aren’t out in full force yet, but I know it won’t be long.

I understand the temptation for them with all the fermenting experiments on the count, so it isn’t like I a surprised they are around, but it just gets hard when you do to take a drink of something like ginger beer  and find a fruit fly floating in the glass AGAIN!

Last summer I tried a few experiments to try to control their numbers.

Head over to Not Dabbling in Normal to see what worked for me.

Sincerely, Emily

    Sometimes i get them but have never tried to catch them. I just get rid of the things lying around. Will keep this method in mind. Nancy

    • Hi Nancy – ya, I also put the fruit and any food I can away. All the things I have fermenting are covered securely so the fruit flies can’t get into them, but they are attracted to those things.
