You Really Can Have Your Fruit and Eat it Too

You should never have to choose between the effectiveness of a product and the health of you and your loved ones.

Feel at Home in Your Own Home

Insects are entitled—they waltz in, unpack their bags, put their feet up, and eat your food like they own the place. The disgust of finding these creatures laying eggs in your fruit can repel you from your own kitchen and can persuade you to feel that you are the unwelcome visitor. But this is your home. 

With Sweet Surrender Fruit Fly Lure and Killer standing guard, your confidence will be restored, your home guarded, your investments protected, and your peace secured. 

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Our formula is reusable for 3-4 weeks at a time. The product has a long shelf life due to its vinegar content. However, over time, air exposure reduces acidity as well as appearance and taste. Reduced acidity could decrease the effectiveness of Sweet Surrender.

    This product is not recommended for consumption. Can cause nausea, vomiting or diarrhea as Sweet Surrender contains a small amount of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). SLS is a soaplike compound that lathers easily, used chiefly in laundry detergents, cleaning products, and toiletries such as shower gel and shampoo.

    We recommend using a mason style jar. However, other cylindrical containers will work just fine. Make sure the container or jar can hold 4 oz. Our testing was performed using mason style jars. We look forward to adding a trap that coincides with our Sweet Surrender liquid.

    Fruit Flies are also attracted to light, and to a lesser degree, heat. If you are not experiencing positive results, experiment with different locations in your kitchen. A jar of Sweet Surrender placed on a windowsill can sometimes outperform the attractant being placed just next to the bowl of fruit.

    Our Sweet Surrender is not intended to catch drain flies or gnats but the fruit fly (drosophila melanogaster). Other names include the vinegar fly or pomace fly.. Helpful hints in identifying are: Fruit flies have rounded bodies compared to gnats. Gnats have a similar body style to mosquitos with long bodies and dangly legs. Fruit flies are brown in appearance whereas gnats are black in appearance. Drain flies have fuzz-like bodies and can be compared to the appearance of moths.

    Depending on the conditions (temperature and captivity) the Fruit Flies lifespan can be 60-80 days. It takes around 10 days from egg to adult. The Fruit fly stages are embryo, larva, pupa, and adult. For additional information, you are welcome to click this link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4876951/

    This stuff is unbelievable! After using several other brands plus my own concoction that never worked, I was shocked at all of the dead gnats/fruit flies that were in the bottom of my bowls. It’s amazing how fast these little devils turn into a swarm. I even tried vacuuming them. But now it is wonderful not to have to worry. I just put the small bowls out and they just can’t resist the SURRENDER! Thanks, Dr K
