Update on the Fruit Flies!

After leaving the jars to sit for a few days, the results are in.

White wine

about half as many in the vinegar

about 6 in the fruit jar

and about as many in the Corona beer that my husband decided he wanted to add to the experiment, as there was in the vinegar.

We did also add one of those sticky fly strips to right above the fruit, and that caught some excess. The fruit flies are gone, and fruit can now reside on my old stove once more. I will, from now on, keep some white wine in a jar on my fruit counter if there are any fresh goods to attract more fruit flies.
