Finally, summer!!!! Hot humid weather, lazy days by the pool, fresh fruits and vegtables and………. pesky little fruit flies. I hate ( and I know, hate is a strong word ) fruit flies. I will be asking the Lord upon my arrival in Heaven, ” Why did you create fruit flies”? I opened my cupboard yesterday and a cloud of the little fliers came wooshing out at me; getting in my eyes and nostrils. As I tend to forget the amounts for the ingredients needed for the “fly trap” from summer to summer, I wasn’t too long getting on the phone with my husband’s grandmother to get the recipe I needed to rid me of my torment.
For those of you reading this who hate fruit flies, I am giving you the recipe for the cure:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vinegar
1 table spoon sugar
1 or 2 sqirts of dish soap
Place ingredients in a glass. Some recipes tell you to place plastic wrap over the glass and poke holes in it; but I find no plastic wrap is neccessary.
Despite being Gross, I take great joy in seeing the little lifeless critters floating in the above mentioned concoction.
Can anyone relate to my situation? Let me know if the recipe works for you as well as it works for me.
ENJOY THE SUMMER!!!
