    Do you have fruit flies in your house or apartment?

    Don't kill small spiders lol...they can help the situation.

    Last time I went to a psych ward I left plums outside of the fridge. When I returned they were rotten and there were fruit flies everywhere.

    All are dead now save for about two. I created traps for them.

    If God created them, that is one of many things God has done that irks me lol :(:D

    Cups of vinegar work for several generations. Then, they all of a sudden stop drowning themselves. They just stand on the rim and wave.

    I sometimes have fruit flies, but only for like one season out of the year.

    The bats take care of the fruit flies. So, no problem there. What I really have a problem with is bats.

    Never figured out how they do it, but they don't seem to have any problem at all getting into my cooler. The thing seems air tight but that doesn't bother them.

    Makes me wonder if their eggs were already there when I brought the produce home (yuck).

    I usually leave a little grape wine. Works wonders and they died quite happy I think.

    They are on the produce. No. Don't look at. Be very calm. Run!

    On the up side, the fact that your produce has fruit fly eggs likely indicates it has low levels of pesticide residues.
