DIY Fruit Fly Trap

diy pest control

When they appear, fruit flies are pesky little creatures and getting rid of them can be challenging. This DIY fruit fly trap has been successfully tested and approved. You will need a funnel, cup or jar, apple juice or apple cider vinegar and tape to hold funnel in place. I like the traps made from recycled bottles, such as the one in the picture. You can, however make your own funnel out of paper and use a cup of your choosing (I recommend a disposable cup). Just pour one inch of the apple cider vinegar into your cup, a couple drops of dish shop, then place your funnel inside as shown, tape to secure. The flies will be attracted to the fermented apple cider and fly in the funnel, then sink (due to the soap).
