This natural solution to fruit fly infestation will ward off these pesky flies.

Need to get rid of an infestation of fruit flies? Mix one
quart of water with 14 drops of lemongrass essential oil.
Shake well and pour into a spray bottle. Then spray the
areas where you see the flies: walls, ceiling, whatever.
Eventually the critters will disappear. You can also use
garlic water, but I’ve had greater success with the
lemongrass water spray. This natural solution to fruit fly infestation is not toxic at all and
smells great, too.
