I am referring to this conspiracy.
For those of you who don’t already know (probably most of you), our office has been having a fruit fly problem. It’s been driving me nuts.
For the most part, fruit flies seem mostly innocuous, they are so hard to get rid of! For example:
“…once they’re established in your house, they can sustain themselves on an impressive range of nutrients. They can live on the slime inside a sink drain. They can flourish on a sour mop. They’ll eat damp flour or food fermenting quietly in a crack in the floor. They’ve even proven capable of existing on a diet of alcohol fumes, their bodies deploying a special chemical that converts the alcohol to nourishment before it can poison them.”
That’s from here.
Thus, I have made a fruit fly trap that I put in our kitchen, and it seemed to be quite successful at catching them. I’ve also been seeing quite a few around my desk, so I just made one for my desk too.
I will keep you guys posted (literally) on my fruit fly catching process. But so far, they seem to be attracted to it.
Thus far, they have not entered the trap. But they are sure lingering on it a lot.
