Fruit Flies? A Simple Solution

In a world full of complicatons, it's nice to find an easy solution to something. We recently found a neglected banana that went *yuck* and *ooze* on our counter. When I went to clean it up, a flurry of fruit flies soared above the counter--I was disrupting their fun! Unfortunately they tend to *linger* though their food source is gone, and they are SO hard to catch and squish and get rid of. I read a thing my mom had sent me awhile back about getting rid of them easily. You put apple cider vinegar in a dish with a squirt of dish soap. They are attracted to the vinegar, and the soap "does them in" when they swoop down for a drink. Voila! As you can see in my dish...it works! I love easy, simple solutions to things.
