    this is ood advice, for a few, but my kitchen is swarming with the little bastards, i find filling a bowl with red wine and a little dish soap then covering it with seran wrap and poking some small holes in it works, caught about 200-300 in a night, also, if you don’t mind cleaning up afterwards, spraying them with hairspray works, freezes the wings right up when it drys and they just can’t move (y)

    I can’t stand the little buggers I use dish soap and white vinegar and set it on the counter it really works. I have more than half of them gone, be glad when they all leave I also have a fruitfly trap I paid 8.00 dollars for before I looked at this site. thanks for the idea.

    Apple juice with dish soap works well too, anything that is sweet and sticky!

  8. Using a closely-spaced horizontal wooden frame made of rods of hazel or willow
    covered in feed or fertilizer bags and held down by
    wire mesh is a suggestion by John Semour. Other mid-range vacuums get the job
    done for the most part. In the kitchen and entryway areas, we decided that laminate was going to
    be the best choice.
