There are certain questions that Iâ€™ve asked â€œGoogleâ€ over the years. Now that I know the answers, I thought Iâ€™d share them on this blog in case someone else googles the same question and happens to discover this very post for an answer! Also, when your friends and co-workers are asking you the same questions, you can pipe in with, â€œWell, I know a woman who knows thatâ€¦â€
Googled: How do I get rid of fruit flies in the kitchen?!
What I Know Now: Gross. I know. This recipe works like a charm: Fill the bottom of a bowl with dish detergent. Pour in a little water so that the soap bubbles a bit. Add a large splash of Apple Cider Vinegar. Cover tightly with Saran Wrap. Poke many holes in the top with a toothpick.
‘Turns out, they can’t resist the temptation.
Oh, and for all those folks out there who are trying to find the “source” of the fruit flies: Once, on a flight out of town, I met a higher-up at Orkin. I immediately grilled her about fruit flies. She said that they nest in drain pipes.
