Little dead black fruit flies in freezer compartment
Posted 27 September 2012 - 06:53 PM
About 6 months ago this unit froze up due to freezing of the exterior drain tube. Using info gained here I took it apart, defrosted everything, unfroze the drain tube using hot salt water. (Salt is also good for killing bacteria, by the way.)
Until reading about these little critters back in the "Customer Service Stories" area I never even guessed they could be coming from INSIDE the refrigerator! Where do they usually breed? What do you do to get rid of them?
Thanks a lot.

Here is what has worked for me: Pour about an inch of sweet wine or apple juice into a glass. Add three squirts of dish wash detergent to the wine. Sit the glass near area where you see the most of the fleas. They are attracted to the smell of the wine/juice and get down in there and somehow the detergent must smother them or something.
This has worked REALLY well. Within 24 hours I've noticed none at all in livingroom, where they would bother me during reading or TV watching. Plus no more in that freezer compartment either!
Now if only we could find such an easy solution for these awful "Stink Bugs" (Asian brown marmolated beetle or something like that) which have invaded the entire Western Pennsylvania area once again this Fall.
