Nibbles: Fruit Flies, Begone

Why would I have fruit flies in my kitchen when it’s January and there are no over-ripe fruits or vegetables here? And yet, there they are. One of my friends from Facebook said she had them, too. She suggested putting a wine cork in with the fruit bowl. It turned out that I had a fairly old bottle of red in the refrigerator, so I poured out the wine and put the cork into the fruit bowl. In less than a day, there were no more fruit flies. But during the pandemic, don’t pour out good wine; drink it first.—Lee White
