Got Fruit Flies?

I don't know about you, ladies, but around my house right now it's fruit fly season. I hate those little buggers (pardon my language if you're a reader from the UK) and am so glad I discovered a successful way to rid my kitchen of them.

If you don't know this trick, ladies, discover it. Works like a Charm!

Simply take a small glass and fill it half way with apple cider vinegar. Add a few drops of dish soap to the vinegar.
Set out on the counter and the fruit flies line up to take the plunge.

See how many I caught in only about 30 minutes time? I had double that amount after a few hours and my kitchen has been fruit fly-free ever since.

Hope you’re keeping cool, ladies!  Blessings!

I've heard of this trick minus the soap. The soap would be the clincher I bet. So far no fruit flies. Now mosquitoes I have, but I have zappers for them.

I've used this trick, minus the soap, and its worked great! I cover the top of the jar/glass with plastic wrap and put a few holes in it big enough for the flies to get in. It works great! I'll have to try the soap in it, maybe it helps keep the flies "stuck in".
