the ups and downs of life

Fruit Flies

I’ll admit it. I bought bananas last week and forgot about them. Well, I sure remembered them this morning when I saw the fruit flies swarming. How in the world do they get in? Do they come in on the fruit? Am I eating them when I eat the fruit? OMG they are disgusting. I am trying to kill the boogers and they’re zipping past my head as if they’re saying “nanny nanny boo boo, you can’t catch me!” and I’m cursing under my breath. I have 2 helpful cats trying to get them, too. It’s not fun. I had a pan in the sink that I was soaking with soap in it and for some reason they seemed attracted to it. I don’t know if it was the bubbles or the smell of the soap or what. But now I have a bowl of bubbly water sitting on the counter trying to attract and drown those pesky pests. I figured using the bubble method would save on chemicals in the air and be less likely to kill me or the cats.

I hate that i let bananas ruin, but I hate more that these stupid fruit flies are all over the place now. This is ridiculous. I guess I will stick to buying 2-3 bananas at a time from now on!

  1. I really don’t know how the fruit flies get in, but they sure do. I buy bananas and don’t use them in a timely manner. What I’ve begun doing is breaking them up and freezing them for smoothies. At least then I don’t feel like I’m wasting money as well as attracting those pesky fruit flies.

  2. I have been swatting like crazy! I put another bowl of soapy water out. They are drawn to that like crazy. I hate spraying bug spray because the smell is so bad and it is so toxic.I am always scared the cats are going to get sick from it, too.
