Summer may be over, but unfortunately, fruit flies are still here to bother us.
Although small, they can be a serious nuisance when you try to deal with your daily affairs, and sometimes it seems impossible to get rid of them.
Fruit flies can lay up to 500 eggs at a time, so if you find several buzzes around your kitchen, it shouldn't surprise you.
After hatching, the larva delights in its sweet surroundings (that's where the food comes in too ripe), and then hatches a few days later.
Fruit flies can mate only two days after reaching adulthood, so it is important to try to get rid of them as soon as they appear to avoid a complete infestation.
Fortunately, however, a woman has shared a brilliant trick to eradicate fruit flies, and the best news is that it will only cost her pennies.
Tina Smith, from Dublin, turned to social media to reveal how an old trick had worked wonders.
