Quick Tip Tuesday #20 - Fruit Fly Trap

Fruit flies drive me crazy, so when I get them, I want them gone FAST!  Today, I thought I would share what works for me.

First, I remove any food sources.  Then, I set a trap.  I put red wine vinegar in a glass, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke a few small holes in the top.  The flies get it, but they never get out.  :-)

Do you have a great way of getting rid of fruit flies?

  1. This totally works! I've done it before, but to be honest, now all I do is pour apple cider vinegar in a small ramkin/bowl and add 1-2 small drops of dish soap, stir and the flies come, land in the liquid and can't fly out!

    1. Interesting! Maybe I will try that next time. Thanks for the tip. :-)


Don't miss any of the fun....
