Funny! You should mention this! I thought I was the only one to suck up fruit flies with a vacuum cleaner!

* I've since started trapping them: Just take an old water bottle & in it put about an inch of apple juice with a dash of vinegar & a teaspoon of sugar added. This mixture will draw the little bugger is & they will drown. The vinegar gives the apple juice that "sour-rotten" smell that fruit flies love so much. It's simply amazing!

We have the most success with this after dark when they are sleeping on the ceilings!

I use my regular vacuum, a dyson, to suck up moths, flies, wasps, bees, anything that doesn't belong in the house. The insects smother in the very fine dust picked up by the vacuum. A few years ago, we had a bee hive with wax & swarms all over, growing in the side of my house. They found a way to come in the house through the wall. Using the vacuum was a quick fix, but it worked great. I had wasps keep coming in to my very old house through pipe hole & what not, vacuum again. It works great.

Wow, I'm gonna have to try this. We have these wee little flies in the house. Not a clue where they're coming from. Thanks for sharing. I've done the apple juice, and vinegar thing. I've also added some Dawn dish soap 2 it.
