Help we have fruit flies...need extreme measures.

Dbscottman | Dec 3, 201407:30 AM     18

I know there is a post on this already, but we tried it all.... All the home made fruit fly traps, all fruit and veggies are put away, trash covered and removed twice daily, cleaned everything we can reach, bleach, drano and boiling water down the drains, and they still keep coming. I heard they multiply fast...so i really don't think more fruit fly trap ideas will work...we can't catch them all, it's just plain mathematics. Need extreme measures to kill them all Fast. Has anyone gotten to this point? Anyone try bacterial injesters down the drain or foggers? Please help. I have young children that are getting sick.
