I have a problem.
Over the past few days, my kitchen house has been invaded…
By fruit flies.
And not just a couple here and there…a LOT of freakin’ fruit flies.
I’ve resorted to putting all of my fresh fruit in the fridge, with the exception of my bananas; they’re keeping their counter status with the help of some Clearly Fresh Bags that I was sent a while back. So far, the bags are working very well.
The swarms of fruit flies, however, are going nowhere. Except, of course, in my face.
Normally, my apple cider vinegar trap does the trick. I just place the vinegar in a small cup, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke some holes in the top with a toothpick.
But over the course of three days, I’ve trapped three fruit flies.
Thanks to a tip from my dear friend Heather, I also tried doing the same sort of trap, but with a banana slice inside.
So far, nada.
The only other trap I could come up with is the sticky fly trap that I can remember my dad hanging in our garage all while I was growing up.
Call me crazy, but I’m not quite sure that I want these beauties hanging from my kitchen ceiling…
So I’m begging. If you have ANY tips for how to get rid of these darn little things, please send ‘em my way. I’m going nuts!
Have I ever mentioned how much I love leftovers? Especially when it’s too hot to turn an oven on.
Tonight, Jay enjoyed some of last night’s leftover steak while I finished off the rest of Monday’s Chicken Taco innards. I also added a dollop of plain Chobani + salsa to tonight’s leftovers which made it even more delicious.
On the side, I also had a piece of toast with a little light butter.
I’m hoping tonight’s meal will do a good job of keeping me fueled without feeling too full for my softball game.
Yes, lucky me has a softball game tonight in this sweltering heat. I’m trying not to complain though, especially since Jay is playing two games tonight. It could always be worse, right?

Question for the Evening:
How do I get rid of these darn fruit flies??? Please tell me I’m not the only one dealing with the invasion!
