Fruit Fly Trap

Around our house we eat a ton of fruit.  Thanks to Aldi opening in our area recently, it has gotten a little cheaper but I still have a tiny problem.  Every now and then, fruit fly’s will end up in my house.

They. Drive. Me. Crazy!

A friend of mine shared with me her super easy, fail-proof way to getting rid of these little pest!

Here is what you will need:

A cup

3 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar

2 drops of Dawn Dish Soap

Foil or Plastic Wrap

20130702-195913.jpgDrop your Dawn soap in the cup. The soap causes them to drown when they touch the liquid.

20130702-195920.jpgPut your foil or plastic wrap over the top of the cup.

20130702-195927.jpgPut a small hole in the top of the cup.  This makes it hard for them to get out of the cup.  Set it an area where you see the most fruit flies.  Change it after day or two if you still have fruit flies.

Now…go eat your fruit in a pest-free kitchen!!!!
