As Fall arrives, Hampton Roads residents yearn to open their windows and bring the cool outdoor weather inside. Often flying insects join in to enjoy the indoor environment. Next enters a fruit fly epidemic. With a little patience and a few household items, the solution is simple. A yellow cup, liquid soap, apple cider vinegar, baking soda, and water will solve the problem in a coupe of days.
First, pour baking soda, then apple cider vinegar in all sink drains where flying insects exist. After a few minutes, run water down the drain. Moist sinks and garbage disposals become feeding and breeding areas. Without removing the eggs, your infestation will continue to progress.
Next, mix water, liquid soap, and apple cider vinegar in a yellow cup. Flying insects perceive the yellow cup as a large flower, the vinegar scent draws flying insects to the center of the cup, and liquid soap provides extermination. You will find the yellow cup will be considerably more effective than a clear or any other color cup.
In a few days, you will rid these pesky pests from your home and can continue to enjoy the cool fall weather without a swat.
