This is a simple and effective pest control tip for ridding your kitchen of pesky little fruit flies.
| ||Put a chunk of banana in the bottom of a glass jar.|
| ||Create a paper funnel by rolling a standard piece of paper and taping it into the shape of a funnel with a very small hole at the bottom, and the top considerably wider than the mouth of the jar.|
| ||Set the funnel in the mouth of the jar, pointy side down.|
| ||Set this contraption wherever you have seen fruit flies.|
| ||They are attracted to the banana smell. The flies will go down the funnel, and can't get out again.|
| ||Check the jar frequently, and whenever you see captured flies, release them out of doors, where they will die shortly.|
| ||Don't pull the funnel out while still indoors or they will get right back into your kitchen.|
| ||Change the banana piece frequently, as they will lay their eggs on it.|
