Homemade Fruit Fly Trap

Fruit Flies are so annoying. They seem to come from nowhere, and they won’t leave!

For a few years, I’ve used a homemade fruit fly trap.

I put a small piece of fruit or fruit peel in a small glass bowl. I tightly cover with plastic wrap. That’s why the bowl has to be glass, so you can get a tight seal. I then make a couple of holes in the plastic wrap with the tip of a sharp knife.

The fruit flies fly in, but the can’t get out!

I then take it outside to dispose of the fruit and the flies.

I recently discovered another fruit fly trap at Passionate Homemaking

I will be trying one this summer, when the fruit flies are most annoying.

    Here's a tip: A bit of vinegar or wine in the bottom of that glass will attract even more fruit flies than a piece of fruit! Very effective fruit fly trap. (can you tell I hate fruit flies too?) :)

  2. I'll have to try that, Thanks!
