Homemade Fruit Fly Trap

fruit fly trap

I heard on Public Radio recently that fruit flies are extremely pesky nationwide this year. We’ve been experiencing more than ever it seems, and it’s that time of year where produce abounds on our counter & tabletops. Hubby went to the hardware store & saw fruit fly traps for $8, and came home & made this one. Just take a small container, put apple cider vinegar & a little dash of dish soap in, cover it with plastic wrap w/ a few holes in it & you’re all set. Those brown spots in the bottom are all dead fruit flies. This was after a day or 2. I love saving $8 by using materials we already have!
