If you are like me, one of the best parts about summer is all the yummy locally raised fruit and melons. But along with the fruit come the fruit flies. It’s almost unavoidable, but you don’t have to put up with them AND you don’t have to risk your health using toxic chemicals to spray and kill them. This is super easy and very effective. You’ll be amazed by how many you catch!

All you need is a jar, some apple cider vinegar, dish soap, plastic wrap, and a rubber band.

1. Pour your ACV into the jar.

2. Add a few drops of dish soap.

3. Stretch the plastic wrap across the top and secure with rubber band.

4. Poke a few holes in the plastic wrap and set on the counter or wherever your fruit flies congregate.

5. Let them come.


You’ll want to replace the ACV every week or so as it will lose potency.
