Here at Chez Green Bag Lady we have been experiencing more than just a cicada infestation. We also have fruit flies. Why? We don't know. They love our ceramic composter. We have been composting for years and have never had this problem. It's driving us nuts. In walks my cleaning lady on Monday. As she was leaving, she says, "I put a glass on your counter to get rid of those fruit flies." Um, ok, wait, what? She explains that she put 1 part apple cider vinegar, 1 part water and 2 drops of dish soap in the glass and that soon, "it would be full of flies." I was very skeptical. My mom always said, "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar."
