Fruit Fly Troubles Solved!
I’m thinking retrospectively about this. A while back I brought some delicious little bananas into the house. A couple of days later it was obvious there were a few tiny creatures flying around.
Dang, I thought. Fruit flies!
In the two days that followed, a swarm of the annoying flutterers seemed to take over the house. I could never have imagined how quickly they multiply!
When you have a swarm of them they spread out through the house. Uh-huh...
And so, I made a fruit fly trap.
I took a plastic glass and a little baggie, snipped off a tiny bit of a corner on the baggie. I put a slice of tomato and a piece of orange into the glass. Then I also almost covered them with water. The baggie then went over the glass. I pushed the cut corner into a cone shape with the hole at the centre, and secured it on the glass with a rubber band.
Within minutes those little winged annoyances had sensed the good stuff. The trap worked. You can see all those little black dots under the plastic? Each one is a pesky fruit fly!
It's actually a bit scary how many of them there are but hopefully with my handy-dandy fruit fly trap, I can keep them eliminated.
