I hate flies! I feel like the have invaded my house and they are not welcomed. I understand that they might feel like they are welcomed since my children keep leaving the door open for them, but I assure you they are not!
I like to keep fresh fruit at hand, but I hate that fruit flies also like my fruit. So I’ve been looking for ways to capture and kill fruit flies…because swatting them with a fly swatter just makes you look like a crazy person swatting at the air! Here’s what I tested and I’m happy to say it works!
I put a 50/50 mixture of water and apple cider vinegar in a jar. Then I covered in with plastic wrap and poked small holes in it ( I used a tooth pick). The fruit flies are attracted to the vinegar and once they get in, they can’t get out! (Insert menacing laugh here!) It’s that easy. I did this in the morning and by the afternoon I already had a dozen of those pesky flies floating in the vinegar mixture!
