I think fruit flies are my least favourite part of summer. Maybe tied with wasps but definitely ahead of mosquitoes, and I HATE mosquitoes. I realize fruit flies are pretty inoffensive - they don't hurt or bite - but I can't stand a swarm of insects around my food. They drive me crazy.
Recently I declared war on the fruit flies in my kitchen. I'm winning, although the fight drags on. Like any good army, they rely on numbers to succeed. I rely on paper towel and baby food cups. See below for an image of The Battle of Shiraz.
