How to Get Rid of Fruit Flies

19 Oct

Make a fruit fly trap!


  • Honey or sugar (about a tsp)
  • Vinegar (I use apple cider or red wine)
  • A dab of soap (just enough to make bubbles when you pour water in)
  • A vessel
  • Water
Mix everything together and fill up a vessel (an old jar or something, preferably see-through so you can watch them drop). ¬†Works every time within a few minutes to a few hours. Make sure you don’t fill the jar so full that they can land on the side and drink without having to actually go into the jar. ¬†At the point they enter to take a drink the soap bubbles trap them in and they drown, no more fruit flies bugging you in the kitchen.
