Fruit flies are often found buzzing around the home during the warmer months, particularly in the kitchen. This is because they thrive on high-fructose substances and, as such, are often drawn to fermenting fruit and vegetables. Although these tiny bugs are harmless on their own, they can multiply at a rapid pace and, in some cases, are a sign of unsanitary conditions.

The stale, sweetness of apple cider vinegar is what attracts the fruit flies.

At the same time, the dish soap then works to decrease the surface tension of the liquid.

This lures the flies in and causes them to become immediately trapped.

You can also use apple cider vinegar on its own, however, you will need to cover the top of your trap with clingfilm to keep flies in.

How to make a fruit fly trap using vinegar and dish soap

To begin, fill a small bowl with the apple cider vinegar and add a few drops of dish soap.

Stir up your solution and then place it in the area you have noticed a high volume of fruit flies.

By morning, you should notice the liquid has collected a mass of bugs.

If you don’t wish to use dish soap, cover the top of your dish with cling film, and then poke small holes in it using a toothpick.
