We get these things in our house and it drives me crazy. We went out of town for a few days and when we came home yesterday, they were everywhere. Really bad in the bathrooms. Anyone have any advice on how to get rid of them? I don't leave food out and i try to keep the trash taken our regularly.

We had a fly problem once and I realized there was some gunk on the underside of our flip top kitchen trash pail and they were breeding there it looked like sticky little rice kernels. I washed the heck out of it and it fixed it. I recommend going on a deep search for random nooks and crannies. Maybe a LO threw a piece of fruit or something under a piece of furniture or in the corner somewhere.
Bananas are the main culprit in our house. I've trapped them in a wine bottle before. If there is a little wine at the bottom, they fly in but can't figure out how to get out. Try pouring a little bleach down the drains in the bathroom
We've got a major problem with them right now. I've got little fruit fly traps in every room. Just a shallow bowl with a tablespoon or so of wine and a squirt of dish soap. The fruit flies are attracted to the smell and drown themselves in it. I'm changing the traps daily and there are tons of dead flies. I keep telling my parents that they need to put their produce away until the fruit fly problem is rectified, and that they need a compost bin with a lid, not just an open bowl on the counter. But since they don't listen to me, we'll keep dealing with the fruit flies.
