    my mofo dick. The little bastards never stop appearing. Not only that the annoying little bastards keep going for my beer/food/wine. Who invented these things, and what is their purpose on earth?

    I don't know either where they appear from. If I stay in my room with a forgotten fruit somewhere on my desk (which happens often) they appear like zombies running all over.

    like even when i never open any windows they still appear, and just now found one flying in my bloody cupboard. Everything is in containers and put away, brand new building - clean.

    "The fruit fly life cycle begins when a fertilized female locates a piece of fermenting fruit or other source of fermenting sugar in which to lay her eggs. She can lie up to 400 eggs at a time and male and female fruit flies are capable of reproducing as soon as eight hours after emerging as adults. The mating practices of the fruit fly allow for rapid population growth and infestation."

    This is scary.

    I live in Alabama and fruit flies are an epidemic during the summer unlike anything I've ever seen. Even though my apartment mate and I are very clean people, I have opened my cabinet before and found a bordello of fruits flies. :rolleyes:

    Get rid of whatever is attracting them and put out some traps. Equal parts apple cider vinegar and water with a drop of dish soap. They're attracted to the apple cider and the dish soap breaks the surface tension so they drown.

    Or join the fruit fly zombie horde. Your choice. :p

    Are they blue or red-eyed? :)
    Anyway, they are not that gross since so small but they attract SPIDERS. If you have fruit flies you can be sure some huge monsters are also living nearby

    Wrap your entire person in sticky fly tape, then arm yourself with a back-mounted vacuum cleaner and a 10 foot attachment. Top it off with a pair of aviator glasses and a name tag that says "FRUIT FLY DESTROYER" in all caps. They won't dare go near your beer/food ever again.

    I notice in some public places like pubs there are fat (obese) fruit flies. These are really fat and slow. But in my apartment they are small and skinny.

    Also with a soldering iron you can burn them, some are trying to escape but they'll come back to the fruit and with more precision you can bust them all.

    I had a fly problem one time. I couldn't find out where they were coming form, but I'd kill about 20 a day, and they would all be back the next.

    Finally I found a bag of rotting potatoes behind the door going down to the basement. It was a leaking mess on the floor, with larva swimming around in it.

    That's life with roommates though...

    Use bleach and warm water, whipe every surface of your home where food is. Keep screens over your windows.
