Really, I’m talking about the fruit fly here. It seems this time of year brings out the fruit fly in my kitchen. All the fruits and vegetables that have been recently picked from our garden and are ready to be eaten seem to attract masses of fruit flies. Early fall seems to be the worst time of year. Even my very clever compost pail with a lid has a gathering of fruit flies.
A simple, inexpensive solution to the fruit fly doing the backstroke in a wine glass is this one. At our dinner group gathering, the hosts placed these lids on our wine glasses to keep the flies away. The metal lid came from a Ball Jar and you probably have some these at your house. My food container drawer certainly has a few.
I love simple, easy, and inexpensive solutions like this. Very Go Gingham!
Do you have any tricks for keeping fruit flies away?
