Leveling out the playing field
on July 4, 2011
About a year ago, my boyfriend and I moved into a new apartment - we managed to score a fantastic 2 bed, 2 bath apartment with low rent and included utilities. It was the perfect place to start our life together, and I was often delighted to come home to a beautiful new bunch of flowers on the table...until one day he brought home Kale flowers, and soon began...THE INFESTATION.
Fruit flies began popping up everywhere, flying in front of my face when I was doing dishes, in front of my computer screen in a dark room, landing in my coffee cups every morning when I wasn't looking, and of course, a dozen would launch into flight any time I neared the kitchen sink. I began to wage war - I kept my house spotless from food or damp places they could nest. I would lock onto one and stalk it around the apartment, my back huntched, my hands out ready to squash the beast as soon as I got an opportunity. Unfortunately, this was a battle I was losing.
I found the Terro 2500 Fruit Fly Trap whilst googling home remedies for getting rid of fruit flies. I ordered two, and was at first confounded - several fruit flies would land on the outside of it and sit there, almost as if to mock my feeble attempts to one-up them on the battlefield. This continued for several days. However, I soon started noticing the bastards climbing down into the chamber, and now, a week later, there are at least 20 carcasses in my Terro 2500 Fruit Fly Trap by the sink, trapped dead forever in the red liquid, serving as a reminder for every new fruit fly that crawls down the trap - I will be victorious.
