How do you rid you home of fruit flies? I have no food exposed!

    Fruit flies live an average 2 days you do not have to have fruit to have them. They will seem to appear out of thin air but often it is your garbage that attracts them. Make sure you use a container in you kitchen with a lid. Second make sure your outside garbage container is at least 20 feet away from any entrance door. It is best if the outside container is not placed in full sun.

    Place a bowl or jar with 1 cup vinegar must be ( apple cider) and 2 drops of dish detergent on counter where have seen them. It will take a while but it does work. Just keep out of reach of litte ones.

    Take a cone shaped coffee filter or shape a cone shape out of one snip a small (very small) hole in the bottom. Take a small jar that has been washed clean and mix a spoon of jelly with a splash of vinegar. Cover with the filter pulling the filter tight around the jar and secure with a rubber band. Place near the location of the fruit flies. They will be drawn into the jar but once inside cannot escape

    Put vinegar and baking soda down your drains.That's where they're coming from.
