i do NOT keep food out and my kitchen is clean as a whistle but i have seemed to have been bombarded by fruit flies!

what the heck can i do to get rid of them, and if anyone says to close my legs or mouth, i will rise up like the mighty mitt of michigan and thwart you.

halloo....

writing from my very fat place right now!!
bbq at work and my dessert plate was bigger than my food plate!
And I'm on my way for seconds...



Anyhow, a girl I knew had a fruit fly issue for MONTHS... had the exterminator come out several times and everything and they were just everywhere to the point where she couldn't live in her house.

turned out it was a bag of flour that was opened and in the back of a cupboard that was housing their spawning ground... so after she pitched that they went away.

you may have to empty every single thing out and clean, clean, clean... bleah.

We have had problems with them here at work. They are from the plants. We had like Spanish Moss ontop of the dirt to look pretty, but it was breeding them. We got rid of the moss about a month ago, but I still have one little fly every so many days...like today for instance.
