How to Trap Fruit Flies

On these hot humid days fruit flies can pop up quickly. They can be quite a nuisance. There is a pretty easy and quick way to trap them.

  • Small bowl
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Cling wrap
  • Small knife
  1. Place a bit of vinegar in the bowl.
  2. Tightly cover with cling wrap. It should be very smooth.
  3. With the knife, poke tiny holes in the cling wrap.
  4. Set it out on the counter. This will allow the flies to find their way into the bowl but they will not find their way out.

This also helps if you clean up the fruit or whatever you have on the counter. Within a day or so you flies will be gone!
