Getting Rid of Fruit Flies

How do you get rid of fruit flies in the house?

Getting Rid of Fruit Flies

In a jar with the lid removed, pour a small amount of fruit juice in it and leave it on your counter/table. The fruit flies will be attracted to the juice, and drown. I would check for the source of the flies (decaying fruit) and get rid of it also.


Good Luck.

I should have said a narrow mouthed jar, or even a soda/water bottle. (06/02/2009)

Getting Rid of Fruit Flies

A sure way to get rid of fruit flies that always works for me. Take a cup or old jar, etc. Put a piece of fruit or veggie in it. Take a piece of plastic wrap and secure it with an elastic. Then take a fork and poke holes in the plastic wrap a couple of time. The fruit flies will go in and they can't get back out as the inside of the plastic wrap is rough. Replace every 2 to three days. Discard in a plastic bag tied shut. As the fruit flies will lay larva if left out too long. (06/20/2009)
