A couple years ago when my father was dying of pancreatic cancer he was trying a natural healing remedy in which one of the ingredients was 'dried banana peels'. Well you can imagine the fruit flies swarming. My daughter and I were visiting for 10 days, it was a normal New Mexico Summer...hot...dry...cool nights. Just gorgeous. The fruit flies were a problem and I refused to let them ruin my stay. I got online the 1st evening I was visiting and found several natural remedies. I wished I could give credit to the site I found this concoction on. I chose this one because I knew my parents would have the 2 ingredients needed. This recipe works like a charm every time!

How To Get Rid Of Fruit Flies
1 shallow glass or small glass bowl
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar (does not have to be organic to work)
2 tsp of dish soap
Stir the ingredients together. Set the glass somewhere no one will be curious to take a swig.
This remedy works because the apple cider vinegar smells like rotting fruit (fruit flies can't help themselves so they dive in) and the dish soap makes it a slippery slope.
