Are you battling a swarm of fruit flies in your kitchen? Every time I’ve had them, I’ve followed the source back to a rotten potato in the bin! So get rid of rotting fruit and vegetables first!
Here’s a few other tips from Budget101.com to avoid those pesky pests:
1. Keep counter-tops clean!

4. Keep Recycling and Trash bins clean or covered.
5. Don’t store composting scraps in the kitchen.

Have a fabulous Fruit Fly-free Fall! 🙂
