If you have ever had a fruit fly before, you know how hard they are to get rid of. They crawl out of your hand and then you can not just swat at them to kill them. They crawl into your skin and live to give you another horrible outbreak. This article will show you how to eliminate fruit flies once and for all.
The first thing you need to do is identify where the fruit flies are coming from. Fruit flies come from the drain or wet areas around your home. You will need to get the area clean so you can eliminate these pesky insects in your home. Add apple cider to a shallow glass dish and fill with water.
Now add some dish soap to the shallow dish. Fruit flies will be attracted to the sweet and salty smell of the apple-cider vinegar. As soon as they arrive, the dishwasher will attract them and will not allow any air to get through to your clothes. Your clothes will stink and become even more unbearable for you. The best way to prevent fruit flies in your house is to make sure that you keep your kitchen and bathroom clear of any debris. Clogged drains are one of the main causes of these insects in your home.
The second thing you need to do is use a fruit fly killer. These products work by killing the adult insects as well as their eggs. They are usually available at any grocery store. Simply put the jar of fruit fly killer in your sink and shake it up. Every few hours, you will want to run the jar over the counter and shake it again.
After you have killed the adult insects and the eggs, you will need to kill the eggs. Place a dish soap mixture of one cup of apple cider vinegar in a large rubber glove. Lightly spray the dish soap on the counter and then place it there. Over the course of an hour or so, you will find that all of the fruit flies on the counter and the sink will fall dead.
When you have killed the adults and you have eliminated all of the adults, you will need to wait for the eggs to hatch. When you see them coming back, you can wipe the counter clean and apply the fruit fly killer again. You will find that over time, your kitchen and bathroom will smell fresh again and everything will look beautiful. If you continue to apply the fruit fly killer regularly, you will eliminate all of the fruit flies in your kitchen and in your bathroom. As soon as you notice them coming back, you can wipe the counters clean and apply the cleaner in each location.
