With the giant hole in my kitchen ceiling (I promise I will do a post about the whole thing, but right now I’m still living through it all), have come a disturbing amount of drain flies as well as fruit flies. One night, while enjoying some lasagna, The Gentleman Friend and I decided we’d have some wine with our meal. I left my glass unattended to go outside and when I returned it was covered in flies.
So I decided to make my glass of wine a fly trap. If you want to do the same here’s what you need:
- A glass of wine or beer (preferably one that has already been tainted by the little bastards)
- Some plastic cling wrap
- Something to poke holes in the plastic cling wrap (I used an ornament hook that I found on the floor)
Step one: Place the plastic cling wrap over the top of you glass.
Step two: Poke holes in the top that are big enough for the flies to get in to the trap.
Step three: Set the trap out where the flies are and wait.
I know this isn’t really a “craft” but I thought it was “crafty.”
