    Fruit flies may be the most annoying creatures in the world! I tried just about everything to kill them, but this was the only thing that worked. This is how many flies I caught in 5 minutes!

    We have been having some issues with fruit flies this year, and no matter how much we hide our fruit and produce they were still there.

    I tried creating a funnel and putting a pieces of fruit at the bottom, it didn’t work. I also tried putting apple cider vinegar in a bowl and covering it with saran wrap that had holes in it. ┬áNOTHING was working.

    This is the only thing that worked for us:

    1. Fill small bowl with Apple Cider Vinegar
    2. Add 2 -3 drops of Dish Soap
    3. Mix together with a spoon and set out.


    As you can see, it worked! Within a few minutes of putting this out on the counter, we caught SO many fruit flies. ┬áIt seems that the apple cider vinegar brings them in and the dish soap makes it slippery so they can’t get out.
