Fill a bowl or glass with apple cider vinegar, cover with plastic wrap and a rubber band to seal the edges, and poke tiny holes in the top.
The fruit flies will be attracted to the vinegar, but once they’re inside, they won’t be able to escape the plastic wrap barrier.
Mix apple cider vinegar and dish soap.
What are these little flies in my house?
Answer: If you have gnats in the house, it usually means the presence of one or both of these small flies: FUNGUS GNATS. If the flies are small, black, and flying around windows or potted plants; then they are probably fungus gnats. These flies are the most common small fly in houses.
Why do I have fruit flies in my kitchen?
It is extremely difficult to rid a home of the common fruit fly. Fruit flies are attracted to sugary, organic materials. Fruit flies often lay their eggs in rotten fruit and other soft, sweet, organic materials. If you identify a fruit fly infestation in your kitchen, dispose of all over-ripe or damaged fruit.
How do you naturally get rid of fruit flies?
Pour just enough cider vinegar to cover the bottom of the jar. Add a drop of dish soap (it will break the surface tension of the vinegar so the fruit flies can’t just sit atop the liquid). Now, cover the jar with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in the top.
