So you've committed to composting under the new Metro rules. But now come the fruit flies. Here come a few suggestions to combat and get control of the critters.
WHAT'S CHALLENGING YOUR COMMITMENT TO COMPOSTING?
If fruit flies are swarming at your home, you are not alone. Here are a few suggestions from the KINK Community on our FB page. And even more pesky details HERE.
- A nice green alternative for sprays is to get and grow a sundew plant. Sundews are a carnivorous plant that can be purchased locally at some specialty greenhouses and are easy to raise. I purchased mine at the Beaverton Farmers market. I don't remember the vendor's name, but it should be easily googled.
- There is a selection of fruit fly
containers at solutions.com.
I think that is where I saw them.
- If you let your house/kitchen get cool enough, they will die off. Mine did, cuz our house is always about 64 deg. at night.
