Fruit flies flitted about my house this week. I blame the bananas.
But fruit flies are no match against a housewife with access to Google.
Here is the quickest, easiest way to get rid of them: Pour a little red wine vinegar (or balsamic, but white won’t work) in a cup. Add a drop of dishwashing liquid. Gently mix.
The fruit flies drown themselves in the vinegar.
(This is what my life has become. I am extraordinarily pleased to have killed four dozen fruit flies with a minimum of effort.)
