Easy, Effective Fruit Fly Trap

This is literally THE most effective fruit fly trap that I’ve tried. It’s simple to make and most people would have all the ingredients already on hand…water, sugar, vinegar, and liquid dish detergent. No need to cover it with plastic wrap. Just mix it up and place it near whatever is drawing the fruit flies and they will be attracted to this mixture.

After placing a few of these traps in my kitchen, dining room, and even bathroom (yep…we had them just about everywhere!), almost all the fruit flies were caught within a day or two. It was amazing! Give it a try.

In a small cup, simply combine…
4-5 oz warm water
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 drop of your favorite liquid dish detergent

Stir it all together and place the cup near whatever is attracting the fruit flies. Do not cover the cup with plastic wrap. Leave it open so the flies can easily make their way to the liquid. That’s it!

Here’s my quick video showing how to make it…

I hope this helps!
