San Francisco’s Composting-Related Fruit Fly Invasion Solved With Home Remedies

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Now, here’s what I mean about “composting-related” – our new initiatives in San Francisco are going to take a while to get used to, and during this transition I’ve noticed a whole bunch of fruit flies that weren’t around before. Maybe this is just me, but the guy at Cole’s Hardware says the $15 cure they have just for San Francisco’s fruit flies is hard to keep in stock due to enormity of our current invasion.

But there’s Hope. It seems that fruit flies are the stupidest animals in the world, so pretty much any attempt you make to outsmart them will work like a charm. The only way to lose this game is to not try. So, why not get some apple cider vinegarand then put some cling wrap punched with toothpick holes on top, thusly?

Here’s the reverse angle – the wrap is still there, but it’s hard to see. They check in but they don’t check out!

Is this an obvious solution? Well, not to me, not ever having a problem to this extent before.

But what’s this? Toothy, toothsome CHOW Food Editor Aida Mollenkamp prefers an alternative approach? She shows us how to get rid of fruit flies here, using a bit of wine and dish soap.

So toothy:

That looks like it would work too, what with surface tension ‘n stuff. Thanks for the tip, Aida.
