Thank you all for the tried & true methods of reducing the number of fruit flies.  I've saved your methods to use when my kitchen becomes inundated again.

Chris, I am so glad you found ways to capture the devils. I use an old glass with apple cider vinegar in it and catch enough to turn the juice black. So, the old-fashioned ways of my grandmother work better than these new fangled, expensive ones. 

I use a fly strip over my compost pile outside. It gets full in the course of a summer.

Thanks Joan, a beautiful trap, but very expensive! I use one of my own: an old glass with syrup and water and plastic over the top of the glass. Make a very small hole in the plastic and you're ready. I caught hundreds of fruit flies with it. And I hung up fly strips - the kitchen is calming down already!

Blastit! Too many negative reviews on the fruit fly trap. I had a glimmer of hope, dashed by reality check!

Joan, thanks for the info.

Chris, with all the fruit in my house, plus a "compost" bucket, I get fruit (banana) flies, too. I keep a permanent sticky fly strip hanging, which does a great job catching the little buggers. One has to be alert to prevent eggs from hatching.

Comment by Plinius on August 10, 2015 at 1:08am

Not many insects here, apart from the invasion of banana flies in my kitchen. How they breed! Guessing from the numbers, I think about six generations in an evening.

Those vicious biting insects make me look forward to fall. I was out for twenty minutes one evening without covering my self in deep woods repellent and came in with about twenty chiggers buried iunder the backs of the legs. It took a week or so for the itching to stop.
The damned bugs love me!

I'm not a fan of humid midwest insects either.  I'm glad I don't have them here.  We do have a lot of fleas, courtesy of deer herds.  They are not as bad as those midwest insects.  When I was small, I was usually covered with welts from the insects on my skin.
