This year seems to have been an exceptionally bad year for fruit flies. It could be the long hot summer we’ve had, the mild autumn, who knows all I know is that they are pests; they are so annoying buzzing around while I cook, eat or am enjoying a glass of wine. I have small children, a cat and a dog so I don’t feel a pesticide is an option. I sourced out several natural options on the internet and tried a number of them. This is the only one that worked, it’s easy, safe, inexpensive and quick!
Step 1: place ¾ cup of Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass.
Step 2: add 1-2 tablespoons of Sunlight dish detergent.
Step 3: Full force, straight from the tap add water up to the rim so you gets bubbles – the pesky flies get caught in the bubbles and can’t get out.
Step 4: Walk away and in a few minute you will be amazed how many have met their demise. Within a day you will have drowned a colony. It took me two days to rid our house of these annoying pests.
