How can I get rid of fruit flies without bombing my house?
This might sound a little cooky, but this does work.
Gather a few glass jars and their lids. Poke a bunch of 1/8 inch holes in the lid, like the ones used for capturing fire flies when you were a young child. Have the punctures facing 'into' the jar, as an 'entrance' from the outside - inward.
The 'secret ingredient' is fruity wine. You don't need much, about 1/8 to 1/4 cup per jar.
The fruit flies will be attracted to the fruit scent and they become disoriented by the vapor, and then drown in the liquid. The direction of the holes enhibit their excape.
This really does the trick!
Osage orange setting in a bowl will keep many bugs away. Incl. fruit flies, lady bugs, spiders etc.

How do you get rid of flies?There is nothing in our backyard to attract so many flies. We clean up after our pets 3 times a day. There isn't any food either. Our neighbors have dogs and I am wondering if that is why there are so many. I don't want to use fly strips because they are unattractive....
