Don’t fret, people! I came across a remedy in a hardware store on Martha’s Vineyard last summer and let me tell you, it works. I thought the time was nigh to share. Here goes:
Place a bowl filled with half a quart of water (that’s 2 cups in case, like me, you aren’t so good with the conversion), 2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a couple drops of dishsoap and voila! The flies love it and your kitchen is rid of them and their brethren. It really is that easy. I know, I know – you’re welcome. Enjoy!
