The fruit flies. Driving me nuts. I peel the cucumber, they come. I chop the tomato, they come. I stem the strawberry, they come and come and come.
At 8:15 I put out the trap:

2 Tbs. water
2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
A few drops liquid dish detergent

Aha! At 10:00 I had victims.
Revenge is mine.

I'm happy that I don't have the fruit flies yet....
You do revenge very well ;)

My favorite dressing: Ken's Asian sesame. SO yummy! I pour it over my salad with chicken, chow mein noodles, mandarin oranges, and little almond slivers and it's an oriental salad. Yum!

I'll remember that next time I have fruit flies. By the way, what is zantum gum? I'll have to google it.

Ah, the poor little guys :-(

You got those pesky flies.

That doesn't look like water, vinegar and dish soap in that glass.

Thanks for the recipe, but I haven't seen any fruit flies either. Could it be that I haven't bought much fruit this year and there is none growing in my yard either--sad to say.
