Do you have FRUIT FLIES in your house?

I know a lot of people hate fruit flies, who doesn't right?
///////////////////
Our place has fruit flies and it's annoying!
///////////////////
Anyways here is a quick and effective way to kill them.
///////////////////
What you will need:
///////////////////
**Rice wine vinegar
**Water
**A small drop of dish soap
**Bowl you don't use often
///////////////////
In the bowl, pour a good amount of any kind of rice wine vinegar, add a small drop of dish soap, and mix in a small amount of water to dissolve the dish soap. Leave the bowl where you see the flies most, and within time you will see a bunch of them in the bowl that drowned themselves in there!
///////////////////
I have tried it and I LOVE counting how many have drowned in there. MUAHAHHA evil i don't care!

We are fruit fly free :)

Usually the kitties get them before they get to our fruits and food :)

I think the holes were too small LOL great tip!

I used to have MAD amounts of fruit flies when I was in college - good thing my roommates were good with bugs! This is a great tip tho! ... do you think it can work for ants? hahha! hmm probably not~ xD I don't want to invite all the ants in the 'hood...

How's the pregnancy by the way? I can't wait to see the baby!!!!! Babies are sooooo cute when they crawl he he~

Thank you! I was induce with my second baby and it wasn't to bad, but would have wanted her to come out on her own but I had a pubic bone separation & my doctor let me have her 10 days before my due date. the weird thing was I was suppose to be induce May 19 at 6:00am but she wanted to come out on her own and so she did, I started having contraction at 2:00am in the morning lol!
I didn't have to get induce cause she wanted to make her own grand entrance. I hope everything works out for you! Enjoy your quite nights now and enjoy sleeping threw the night cause once the baby gets here oh my word! the feeding at every 3 hours are so tough lol
can't wait to see his picture! take care hunn!

I come to your blog and the first thing I see is a huge picture of fruit flies. I'm thinking what in the world is this about... hehe~ :) It's kind of weird wanting to kill them though. One of my biology project was taking care of them... hehe~ It was for genetics case.

hahaha! that is sooo EVIL! but I love it! My mom does something similar but with an empty gallon, she pours water in it and add the old shrimp shells... flies will start coming and drown themselves! Well, we leave the gallon outside of course so there'll be no flies around the stupid neighborhood.
