I don't know if this is the right place to post this buuuuut here goes!


Anyone have any solutions for getting rid of fruit flies and flour moths? Our apartment has been overwhelmed with them lately and I can't get rid of them! We use seventh generation and ecover for cleaners here. I'm tried the baking soda and vinegar trick for our drains in the kitchen thinking that might help clear out whatever may be attracting them, but no luck. I actually *gasp* resorted to puring a wee bit of bleach down there as a last resort (I usually don't keep chlorine bleach in the house so it wasa  big deal) but no luck. Moths are gettinginot EVERYTHING! I saw one flying around inside a lidded mason jar. INSIDE! With the top screwed on! Even in a pepper grinder (the clear ones you buy already filled)! And spice jars are infested with teeny white worms so had to throw em all out. HELP ME, PLEASE!
