What’s bugging you?

UPDATE 10am

DAILY Examiner readers are determined they are not going to let these fruit flies beat them without a fight.

David Abrahams sent in this link: http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Fruit-Flies which gives you a comprehensive guide to a list of home remedies you can put together with items you can find around the house.

Most of them are organic and environmentally friendly.

FIRST it was mozzies, then it was the clouds of little flies that seem to come from nowhere to hang around food and now - just as we're thinking of taking control of the yard again - ant nests are springing up all over our lawns

What can we do about it?

We know about mozzies and ants are fairly common, but where those little flies come from is one of nature's mysteries.

We're going to be talking to a few experts about how you can deal with them, but we wouldn't mind learning of any home remedies floating around out there.
