A Fruit Fly Invasion!

Living a simple/green life sometimes involves dealing with a few pest. I have been very lucky in this department but am dealing with an invasion of Fruit Flies. Man...are they annoying critters. I swat them and thought they are gone but they kept reappearing. 

I learned online that once they invade they breed like crazy. First you need to find where they have been breeding and clean that up as a female will lay many...many eggs in one day. 

Not wishing to use chemicals I was happy to learn a Green method of eliminating them. 

Mix one tablespoon of dish soap with three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or wine. Offer this solution in a shallow bowl. The smell of the vinegar/wine will attract them and the dish soap will enable them to they will drown. 

Sorry Fruit Flies...Hope you come back as Butterflies in your next life.

Wishing Peace,Health,Wealth,and Love to All!
