The next time you see fruit flies or other insects flying around the inside of your home, refuse the urge to grab insecticide, and use rubbing alcohol instead. Fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and squirt the insects. The drying effects of the alcohol will almost immediately kill them without the use of chemical pesticides. If you have extra rubbing alcohol in the bottle, use it to spray on surfaces to disinfect them, too.
