How to get rid on fruit flies

Eliminating fruit flies is a war of attrition.  Almost impossible to conquer but through perseverance and patience victory is possible. Eradication of breeding sites is paramount to succeed against this enemy.

Follow these prevention tips against fruit flies:
  1. Always wash your mops or rags. They love a dirty mop or rag to breed to them it's like a fancy hotel room with a hot tub.
  2. Never leave over ripe produce out or any type of rotting vegetable or fruit. The sweetness makes them crazy like cats and catnip.
  3. Always keep garbage receptacles clean. Take them in the shower and give them a proper scrubbing.
  4. Any time you spill something sweet like honey, fruit juice or syrup etc, clean it up immediately.
  5. Make sure recycling areas are clean and any of your recycled containers have been thoroughly rinsed.
  6. Always keep drains flushed and cleaned.
How to construct your fruit fly death trap:

Get a bowl or a cup and pour an inch of apple cider vinegar inside and cover the top with Saran Wrap.  Now take a tooth pick and poke a dozen holes in the top.  If you build it they will come.....and die.
