Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So yeah I have like 50 gnat/fruit flys flying around my kitchen. I kill at least 30 a day but cannot get rid of them! Today I made two traps one filled with orange dish soap and apple cider vinager the other filled with water sugar honey and orange soap.. The both have plastic with holes poked in them so far they seem to just fly near the cups Ive killed 1 so far :/ all these fruit trees are terrible forbthis reason.

If anyone has any solution that works for getting rid of them please share! Very Happy

I get a fruit fly invasion every year in Aug when I do peaches. This year was earlier as we have been eating a lot more bananas than usual.

First - do not keep ANY garbage in the kitchen. Ever. Second, take an empty soda bottle, 1 or 2 liter size, put an inch or two of orange juice in the bottom, set, open next to your sink (or wherever the fruit flies inhabit). THey can fly down and most of them drown in the juice, those that don't, have great difficulty flying up and out.

I think a beer can might work though it may be small enough for them to find themselves back out. Red wine works, beer might even work, lemonade. Leave the top open - I think part of the reason this works is that the opening is small and they find it hard to get out. The juice acts as a bait so anything that attracts fruit flies will work - just has to be liquid so the drown.
