9 Responses to How to Get Rid of Fruit Flies

    • Nope, it definitely didn’t attract more of them…I had only noticed one or two around the kitchen, I left the trap out for 24 hours, and it only caught two in the first 12 hours, no more after that…and I haven’t noticed any more around the house since!

  1. You can also take a little dish, pour some apple cider vinegar in it, add a dash of dish soap, quick stir and soon no more fruit flies! The apple cider vinegar attracts, the soap finishes them off. :)

  2. Ok, I have now made 3 of these using a plastic single use water bottle. I have use soft grapes in the bottle make a cone out of some advertising (it’s nice and slick). Taped the cone to the bottle. Wahla, this works fabulously and my husband about 20-7 yards from the bottle gets to take a nap peacefully, with no gnats flying up his nose!
    Now there are no more grapes so a squished 4 blackberries and some molded Cool whip to speed the deterioration of the blackberries! Last bottle had about 15-20 gnats!

I freely admit that I am not always the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my *unoriginality* I can provide some inspiration to you, too!
