Default Fruit flies...

My house was full of them recently.

Took a wide topped glass and put a bit of red wine in it. Covered the top with plastic wrap. Punched a small hole in the center of the wrap. They can get in, but can't get out...All gone in 24 hrs.

We've had a lot of fruit flies this summer, and there were a ton at Heath Market yesterday--is this a thing? Anyone know why?

Probably tagging along with the recent influx of presidential candidates. They are of the same ilk!

Another good trick is to fill a glass with apple cider vinegar and then add a few drops of dish soap. That catches them well too.

True but a more true description would be fruit loops.
