Fruit Flies & Pinterest, who knew?

Out of the 384 brilliant bits I've pinned and 40 ideas I've Liked, never in my wildest dreams did I think the first one I would try at home is this uber simple fruit fly trap from The Idea Room!

But........I did!  I don't know where they came from, but suddenly we had fruit flies and those little buggers multiply fast.  Thankfully, I saw this one night on Pinterest and immediately Liked it and headed off to its original source so that I could learn more.

And it works!!  No chemicals, no expensive sprays or traps, just a couple of pennies for a piece of fruit, some tape, and a piece of paper, rolled to make a small hole for them to enter, but not fly out of (I used lightweight cardstock...'cause goodness knows, I've got a ton o' that!).

Best, simplest idea of someone else's I've put to work in awhile!

If you're not on Pinterest already, get on there!  Email me & I'll send you an invite if you need one.  When you get on there or if you're already pinning away, come find me so we can share more brilliant bits to pin!

  1. Very cool! I just started following you on pinterest!

  2. That IS brilliant! We have an infestation too, and we've been using fruit juice in a glass with saran wrap over top with tiny holes poked in it, but it looks like this one makes it WAY esier for them to get in and stay in. Have to remember to show this to the Hubs - he'll love it!

  3. SUPER tip and GREAT share, Kare! XOXO!
