Bring it on, Fruit Flies!

Steve decided that he had enough of those pesky fruit flies last night.  After googling around the internet, he came up with this awesome recipe for fruit fly killer.  We can't believe how well it works-only wished we had started using it weeks ago.
Here's the simple recipe:

All Natural Fruit Fly Killer
  1. small wide mouth jar
  2. fill with ~ 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  3. mix in ~1/2 teaspoon dish soap
  4. set near fruit and watch those little buggers die

We "caught" at least 30 of those bad boys in 12 hours

And it even looks (sorta) pretty on the counter!

 We went camping with good friends at Beckler River campground over Labor Day-it's just 1.5 hrs east of Seattle.  There was a lot of sleeping done by the little lady and a lot of exploring done by Ben.  It was a blast!

 My little boy is getting so old, started his second year of preschool this week!


  1. Those fruit flies are HORRID at our house right now!!! Gad, it's disgusting. I have a paper funnel over my jar, but it isn't working. I'm goin' all open like yours to try it out.

    Super cute kid pics!

    1. I know! That's what you get for yummy fruit, right? It's so sick. I guess something about the dish soap breaks the way the liquid is so that the flies get stuck/drown more easily. Good luck! Ours are gone after less than a day.
