Got annoying fruit flies in the kitchen? Trap them with the help of an old banana peel. Simply take a large plastic container (like an empty quart-size yogurt container) and punch a few small holes in the lid using a nail and hammer. Then place the banana peel inside and seal it shut. The scent of rotting, sugary fruit will attract the flies, which will crawl through the holes and then be unable to get back out. After a few days, empty the peel and bugs into the compost and place the plastic container in the recycling bin.
