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.
