How To Trap Fruit Flies

Learn how to trap fruit flies with apple cider vinegar with these 4 simple steps.

If you've got fruit flies buzzing around your house, you can create a simple trap to capture them with a bowl, plastic wrap and apple cider vinegar. Place a small amount of the vinegar in a bowl and cover it tightly with plastic wrap. Using a toothpick, poke several small holes in the top of the bowl and place it near areas where fruit flies are present. They’ll be attracted to the apple cider vinegar smell and make their way inside where they won’t be able to get out.

There are a variety of commercially available fruit fly traps; however, trapping alone usually does not completely eliminate the problem.
