    What is the best way to get rid of fruit flies?

    Fruit flies that appear in the kitchen in particular

    Put out a glass with a small amount of wine or vinegar.  Cover with clear plastic wrap and poke a hole in the middle.  The flys go in but can figure out how to get out and drown.

    You can pour boiling water into your kitchen drain, which many times is where they originate. You can also mix up some sugar water, banana, syrup, or some other sweet concoction that they will be attracted to, put it into a cup, then put plastic wrap over the top and poke some holes in it. The flies will be able to get in, but not out. Good luck!

    @ grinnin1: I've never heard that tip about the drain! I'll have to try it.

    @peanutroaster & grinnin1: My mom does the cup + plastic tip; I completely forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder.  smile
