new pet peeve

I hate, despise, LOATHE ENTIRELY...fruit flies.
They have infested our home. Maybe my fault...I let some bananas go bad. Certainly not the 1st time. I was going to make banana bread. I moved the bowl they were in and the little beasts swarmed my face and I wanted to throw up, almost did. Usually, once I get rid of the bad fruit, they're gone. But nope. It's been 2 days, 2 very very long days, and they show up everywhere. I pick up a rag, they swarm. I open the spice cupboard, they swarm. I turn on the faucet, they swarm. So I took measures today. I've tried 2 ways to get rid of them. One with some fruit in a bowl and plastic wrap to trap them in. Another in case they're drain flies and not fruit flies (who's ever heard of such a thing?) with ice and dishsoap down the disposal. I don't know? But the internet forums say it works. But I HATE them. They will die.

I know entirely too much about the life cycle of a fruit fly. Why, oh why, when their lives are so short are there SO MANY of them ALIVE in my house?! Okay, not yet, but they will be. I've tried every hokey internet-found way to get rid of them and NOTHING WORKS.

I'm sorry I'm not more help. But I hear you. Oh, I hear you.

I sucked them up once with my vacuum hose. Worked like a charm.
