"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Fruit Flies

Last summer with all the canning and no screens we were over ran with fruit flies. They drove me nuts. When I started noticing them coming back for their summer visit, I set out to find a way to get rid of them. This is what I found.

1/2 cider vinegar
a couple drops of dish soap

Put it in a jar, lid off. It takes a day or so before the little boogers start to notice it. Also, make sure you don't leave food out. I found that I have to keep my chicken scraps (the problem in out house) outside. The flies LOVE the "juice" and I am a very happy woman (with no fruit flies in her kitchen! )
