I'd heard to put out a saucer or bowl of apple cider vinegar to attract them, so that's what I did:
And they sat around the rim of the container like they were hanging out around the pool at a party. That really worked well. I had created for them an all-inclusive resort. Sandals for fruit flies.
So I went to where all good people go when they are in need of pest control.
I learned that I should do this:
Make a funnel with a piece of paper and put it into the mouth of a container with apple cider vinegar in it. The theory is that they will fly down through the funnel to get to the oh-so-delicious vinegar, but then not be able to make their way back out. Sounds lame. Except ...
I love you, Internet. Thank you, Al Gore.
