Answer #5

Make a soda bottle trap:

Remove the lid and label from a clean, empty plastic two-liter soda bottle. Carefully remove the upper third of the bottle by cutting along its circumference at approximately where the top of the label used to be. Put an attractive liquid such as orange juice or cider vinegar in the cup-shaped part of the now-severed bottle. Turn the cone upside-down and insert it into the cup-shaped bottom part of the bottle. Seal the seam at the top of the bottle with duct tape. Fruit flies find their way into the bottle, but they can’t get back out. After most flies are trapped inside, simply seal the bottle in a plastic shopping bag and throw out.

I’ve used this method before and it works.

if not…open your window all the way and take the screen off…stick a piece of fruit just outside of your window and most of them will be attracted to that…then simply roll the piece of fruit away, and then put your screen back up…

you can also spray the area with a lysol air cleaner…and if that doesn’t work scrub the area down with baking soda and warm water…it pisses them off big time…

anyhow…hope this helps!
