According to Bob Tuckey, owner of The Natural Gardener Garden Store in Vancouver, fruit flies are most common through the month of July.
Luckily, there is a simple, natural solution to get rid of them.
"Carnivorous plants are the best way to control them I think," says Tuckey.
"They'll catch all the fruit flies for you."
Here are his top three plants for dealing with fruit fly invasions the natural way:
1. Venus fly trap
Perhaps the most famous of all carnivorous plants, the iconic Venus fly trap uses sweet-smelling sap to lure unsuspecting insects into its mouth.
Despite its fame, a Venus Fly trap can only catch 3-4 bugs before closing forever, making them less effective than other plants.
2. Pitcher plant
Don't let it's tall elegance fool you, this plant is a living, breathing, fly-eating machine.
Fruit flies aren't the only thing on a pitcher plants menu; it's also efficient at catching wasps and bees.
3. Sundew plant
These are the kings of catching fruit flies. The sweet mucilage on a sundew attracts, traps, and digests an insect making a potent enemy for any fruit fly.
According to Tuckey, just a couple sundew plants on the kitchen counter will effectively rid you of the majority of fruit flies.
