Homemade Fruit Fly Trap

Intro: Homemade Fruit Fly Trap

Fruit flies are really annoying. With this simple trap you will get rid of them without any effort. All you need is

  • a glas / jar
  • water
  • sirup
  • vinegar
  • dish soap

Step 1: Mix

  1. take a glas and fill it half with water
  2. add sirup
  3. add vinegar
  4. add dish soap
  5. wait

As the dish soap breaks the surface tension of the mix, the fruit flies fall in and drown

    I made a similar trap with just dish soap and some wine and there are many fruit flies dead on the bottom. Whiskey works even better to attract them. This is the only fruit fly trap that has ever worked for me.

    Very interesting, and apparently it works very well. I need to do this, right now!
