Mrs Thomas's Book of Household Management
This is hands down the grossest thing I've ever posted, so those of you of a delicate constitution please look away now. This handy household tip is intended only for those of you who are plagued by fruit flies as I currently am. (Is it just a Seattle thing?)
Take one small bowl. Put a piece of overripe fruit in the bottom (they are appear to be very partial to pineapple). Cover with clingfilm and pierce several small holes in the top. Ha ha! The flies are clever enough to work out how to get into the bowl, but too stupid to work out how to get out.
God, this blog spoils you lot sometimes.
