08/16/2011: "How To Trap Fruit Flies"


With gardens abundant, there are now more food scraps to compost than ever so this is certainly fruit fly time! Here’s a fruit fly trap that you can put together very easily and that’s guaranteed to clear the air.

Put 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar into a small glass. Cover it with plastic food wrap or a plastic lid from a yogurt container. Poke many holes into it with a fork or whatever works. Place where needed!

Keep on composting! It’s good for the environment and good for lowering your trash bill.

Groucho Marx said: “Time flies like an arrow but fruit flies like a banana.”
