Shoo Fly

Aren’t fruit flies the WORST? Yes. I think we can all agree that they are and that they are most unwelcome in our kitchens.

If you can recall, last summer Halitrax highlighted the ways we live green in Halifax. Although that is no longer the primary theme of this blog, we still work to uphold as many eco-friendly habits and choices as possible. In this vein, I present to you a fab trick for ridding your home of the little buggers without the use of harmful chemicals.

Fill a glass about 1/3 full with apple cider vinegar and add a small squirt of dish soap. Give it a mix and leave the open glass next to your sink or wherever the flies are buzzing. I saw results within a few hours and only refresh the glass when it’s swimming with the dead guys.

Just don’t mistake it for juice!
