Nats / Fruit Flies in House
What the F$#K is going on, little bastards are driving me crazy.

I've cleaned all the food up, ran the dishwasher took the trash out.

Searched every where for where they could be coming from.

Pour some bleach in all of your drains.

This, and you will need to do it for about 4 days. If it’s this big of an issue already, the eggs have been laid and hatched. They live like 36 hrs, but mate and hatch like rabbits.

shite sucks

Just light up a few cigs in the kitchen. They’ll go away

Put apple cider vinegar in a glass, cover it with Saran Wrap and poke holes in it. It will attract all of them.

Then pour bleach down the drains and get rid of all the old food.

Rubbing alcohol and baking soda mixed poured down all drains also works.

But again, if it’s gotten to a noticeable level, it will take about 5 days to kill them off.

And you need to do the drains at least 3 times a day. All of them.

Shallow bowl of apple cider vinegar or white wine, covered with Saran Wrap with Holes poked in it. That will catch the ones flying around

Put out a little saucer of apple cider vinegar, and add a few drops of dishwashing liquid.

They will disintegrate on contact.

Not really, but it will kill them.

I'm out and too drunk to go to the store, I noticed my dishwasher has been having about an inch of water left in the bottom after it runs. Apparently I have some plumbing issue.

Make damn sure that you didn’t miss some piece of fruit or a vegetable that’s now hidden somewhere.

I haven’t had them myself but know of folks who have and they’re a plague.

This also works, but still treat the drains. I had this issue at work and home within the past year.

Yes, bananas and some berries left out will provide a haven and a hatchery. Don’t leave fruit out.

And thanks for tips about apple cider vinegar. Will try it on some pesky “drain flies” we have in bathroom.

Any vinegar will work. The flies are attracted to the smell of the dish soap. They get stuck in the soap and drown in the vinegar. Leave a little container near your problem area and it will be full of dead flies in a few hours.

They say time flies like an arrow.

Fruit flies like bananas.
