Default Fruit Flys and Home Brew

Dear Diary,
Day 1-I dont like fruit flys.
Day 2-I hate these damn things!
Day 3-Their troops have doubled. Theses ****ers are worse then rabbits. They have even started using my own weapons against me. I set up fly catchers and I could swear this AM the little bastards moved one as I was walking by half asleep so it stuck to my face. All this after the little freeloaders jumped in more of my homebrew last night.

Day 4-I would love to bottle right now, I have a heffe and a pumpking waiting but they keep surrounding me. Today I am going to break down and heavily invest in advance weaponry, glasses with a little homebrew to drown the ****ers. (If they send a fly seal team im screwed).....

Small dish of apple cider vinegar with a drop of dish soap does wonders. Set them up as necessary.

Do a thread search on Fruit flies, most of us had our big issues with them last month. There's plenty of info on the 3 or 4 threads that got started....

Mine have finally peaked, I believe.

Thanks for the link. I know a lot must have had the problem but I just wanted them to know they are not alone.
