When life gives you fruitflies…

take out your microscope and get a closer look.

 

We’ve been experiencing a bit of a fruitfly invasion in our kitchen recently. Maybe it’s the unseasonably warm weather here in TX that’s bringing them in. We’ve been trapping them in cups of apple cider vinegar. ┬áThe other day we decided it might be interesting to take a look at one of them under our microscope. We learned they are striped like bees and are quite hairy. Josh warned me I might regret knowing what these things look like and he’s probably right. I’m not going to be able to stop thinking about it the next time one buzzes around my food.
