I heard that either basil leaves or bay leaves left in a bowl or glass on your counter will keep the fruit flies away can someone tell me if this is true?
I am trying the apple cider vinegar and hope it works. I don't usually have a problem because I always wash all my fruit as soon as I get home from the grocery store. Unfortunately, I had 2 mangos in a basket on the counter to ripen and didn't realize the bottoms were rotting. I kept seeing all the flies and was wondering where they were coming from until I looked at the fruit. YIKES!!
Fantastic: Tried it and got rid of them all. Now I don't have to worry about buying extra fruit and eat it all as it ripens. Thanks a million, they were driving us crazy but did not want to give up the fruit.
I have tried the apple cider vinegar and soap. It works GREAT!!! I love to have fruit around, but hate to put it in the fridge all the time. This has cured the situation.
its the fruit on the kitchen table! :-) and its not all the time, just in the season that they're most annoying. The colder weather tends to keep them away more. It does work great though. I use it when I see them, not all the time. :-)
I'm a little confused. I can understand the concept but why do the fruit flies keep coming in your house. Could it be that the formula is attracting them? Just curious.
I do the same but use apple cider vinegar and it saves a step :0) ... Also... I put in small cup with plastic wrap... Keeps the little buggers in there
Wow, folks, I do hope this really WORKS! It sounds so wonderful to get rid of them cheaply! I am so disappointed that some variety of mosquito has now developed a resistance to my wild field of Society Garlic, but is repelled when I use old original Listerine on my skin prior to going out to harvest the garlic. For years, we had NO pests/flies, etc., but now they seem to be back!
Thanks for the good advice/formula. I'll likely try it.
God bless you. ":)
Put it in a wine bottle. (You could use any bottle with a long neck.). The fruit flies get in but they can't get out!
