September is a beautiful month around here, but it is also Fruit Fly Month. Even if we don’t have any fruit/veggies lying around, they manage to appear. So, this is how we solve that problem. Take a piece of paper, 8.5″ x 11″, the thicker the better. Make a cone with a small hole at the bottom. Tape together, then place over a jar in which you have placed a juicy piece of fruit. Voila.
The disgusting thing is this is one day’s worth of bugs. I kill them by filling the jar with water (cone still intact) and adding a few drops of bleach.
