Getting rid of pesky fruit flies

One downfall and benefit to working somewhere that has a contract with a pest control company is that you get to see the 'bug guy' on a regular basis. This is a bad thing because no one should know their bug buy by his first name but is a good thing because you learn how to keep the bugs away.

The most interesting, and useful, piece of information that I learned was about fruit flies. Did you know that fruit flies breed in drains? And did you know that the average lifespan of a fruit fly is 24 hours? The most useful thing I learned from this is if you ever get fruit flies, just bleach all your drains. This will kill any fruit fly eggs and prevent any more flies from hatching. Also since they only live for 24 hours, any flies you currently have, will just die off.

Hooray for no more fruit flies!
