Shoo Fly!

We have had fruit flies for the past 3 days and I have been going crazy trying to find where they were coming from. I had to bring in one of our hanging tomato plants because the raccoons were helping themselves, but it was only in for 1 night and I checked it and it did not have any bugs. I checked the fruit basket and everything was cool in there. So the search continued.

Remember when I was looking for a rice cooker... well I found a great one and it sits on the counter as we use it 3 - 5 times per week. It has the steamer basket on it (that is great, btw). Well, guess what we found in that steamer basket with the lid on it... a very ripe banana! And.....5 million, billion, trillion fruit flies! I love my kids!

My husband always says, "Be fruit flies and multiply." We love fruit flies under a microscope because they have different color eyes - some blue, some brown - it was always fun smushing them between glass :)

Be blessed.

ooooohhh. smooshing them between glass sounds like our first science experiment. Lets see if I can find some hidden fruit in the kitchen. LOL
