My pet hate about spring & summer, is the number of small flies around the house. fruit flies in the kitchen, others in the sitting room, dropping in for a swim in my wine.... hate them.
i bought a pack of plug-in blue light things, quite cheap from a well known DIY store- they are totally useless! what I wonder is what really works? i do try and keep fruit in the fridge, keep things that are out covered etc. But these pesky flies drive me crazy.
do carnivorous plants actually work, or would i have to have enough to turn my home into a jungle for them to be effective?
the blue light thing... i think the plug in things i have are just lights with a bit of blue plastic, whereas i think what professional kitchens and butcher shops tend to have is something more than this... not sure what.
GWers- what's your best defense against small flies around wine glasses and in the kitchen?
