    Default Need Help getting rid of Fruit Flies

    We just moved and the new house has fruit flies. I don't want to use

    bug spray in my kitchen. Does anyone have any home remedies to get rid

    of them?

    Thanks

    Take a small container of water and place sugar in it. They will come to the water and drown. Gina

    Make a trap with a empty water bottle. You cut it in

    half and place bait in it. flip the top over onto the

    bottom half and tape the edges. When you get a bunch

    in the trap. You fill it up with water that will drown

    the flies. Just pour them out. You rinse it out and do

    it over. Just keep doing it until there is no more.

    Use several traps and make sure you clean them out

    daily. For bait use a piece of citrus fruit. Hope this

    helps.

    I put about 1/2 c vinegar in a small glass container, to that i add a few drops of liquid dish soap. cover the container with plastic wrap, then punch about 10 holes in it using toothpicks and put it on the counter or near the fruit basket. the fruit flies will get in but not be able to get out. i have done this and it works.

    In my opinion, unless you have access to Dalmatian Mums, none of them are

    practical any more. The active ingredient in them is pyrethrum, which is a

    very effective insecticide and pisciside. They are sold in farm supply

    stores as dairy barn spray. They bio-degrade quickly, are not toxic to

    mammals and are very effective on most insects. Some of them also have

    small amounts of rotenone, which is a bit more iffy around mammals, but you

    should be able to find one with just pyrethrums.

    I've had great success getting rid of fruit flies by setting out a small mason jar or clean jam jar filled halfway with apple cider vinegar, with a few holes punched in the lid. The flies fly in but can't get out and they drown in the vinegar.If you have a major infestation, you'll be amazed at how many flies that jar catches in a single day. Just keep emptying it and refilling as needed until all the flies are gone.

    12.0pt;font-family:Arial;color:black;">If there is no fruit in the house they
    may be drain flies. Pour bleach down the
    drain to kill them all and keep all dishes out of the sink and remove any
    standing water. Eliminate what they feed
    on and they’ll go away…eventually<span class="GramE">..
