Make Your Own Fruit Fly Trap

Fruit flies can be a pain, but with a simple trap its surprising how quickly you can get rid of them.
  • Put bait in the bottom of a container. Wine, juice, fruit or a combination make excellent bait.
  • Cover the top of the container with plastic wrap and secure with rubber band
  • Poke holes in the the plastic wrap so the flies can get in. Toothpick sized holes are the perfect size.

Alternatively you can use about an inch of liquid bait like cider vinegar and then add a few drops of dish soap to the liquid. The dish soap will break the surface tension of the vinegar so the fruit flies can't just sit atop the liquid.
