how do i rid of fruit flies in my plants


I've had the same problem and was able to get rid of the fruit flies using the following method.

First, sprinkle diatomaceous earth on the dirt in the plant pots. Diatomaceous earth is all natural and non-toxic, but it will kill the fruit flies.

Here's a link for killing bugs naturally with diatomaceous earth:
How to Get Rid of Spiders Naturally with Diatomaceous Earth

Next, make a mild soap and water solution, pour it in a spray bottle and spray the plants. Make sure the solution is mild because if it's too strong it will affect the plants.

Here's a link for the homemade insecticide soap recipe:

The combination of the diatomaceous earth and insecticide soap will take care of your fruit fly problem. It will probably take about a week or so for all of the fruit flies to die, but if you're vigilant you'll take care of the problem.

Dishwasher is not rinising properly. Frequently food left on dishes and soap residue. We have a water softner, we have been using less and less soap. Sometimes theres even soap left in the cup at the end of the cycle.

GE Dishwasher / Model#: GLD4400N10WW Serial#: AS837876B We have had the dishwasher for 14 months. No problems until now. 1) Soap does not empty completely out of the soap compartment. 2) Soap residue all over the tub. 3) Dishes have soap residue on them after wash. 4) Dishes have dried on food on them after wash. I am mechanically inclined. Help!

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

I would like to know what i can clean my JVC Flat screen with !


Dilluted dish soap with no ammonia, bleach or harsh detergents. Might use baby hair soap. Do not pour onto screen apply it to a soft cotton or soft lint free cloth. Just dampen and you should be good to go. Hope this helps, just keep the soap mild.
