yea we aren't tequila drinkers but my house turns into a frat house on the weekends with all the guys my hubby works with so i can always count on having some on my shelf. you should be able to get one of those little sample bottles they have at the front of the store for like $3. that would probably be enough!
we must have got some from there not long after we moved in and they got horrible! went on a short vacation and when we came back they were mostly gone. still see one every now and again, but thats tolerable.
my friend just had a ton of them and she tried everything to get rid of them, then finally came across something that worked. She used a plastic cup, saran wrap, rubberband, vinegar, piece of banana and a little oil.
Rub oil inside the top of the cup all the way around the circle of the cup inner rim, put in vinegar about a 1/4 cup and smashed up chunk of banana in cup, cover the cup with saran wrap then put the rubberband around the top of the cup, poke about 6 small holes in the top of the saran wrap and leave it on the counter. She had a cup with tons of fruit flies that could not get out.
You can make trap by putting juice in a soda or water bottle and then roll a piece of paper up like a funnel. Place it in top of bottle and leave where you see them most. They flye into bottle to lay eggs. Then get stuck. Squirting windex on them works too.
there is a vent thing at walmart you can get (like 7 bucks) that kills them (ants and other bugs too) and isn't toxic to humans. it hangs from the cealing. works amazing! took three days, and never a bug again! and FYI, you don't have to have a messy kitchen or bad food to get fruit flies:-) we talked to our exterminator when we got them, and after seeing how clean our house was and how i asked how we could get them in the house when i clean so much, and he said that it has nothing to do with cleaniness or bad fruit.
