Introduction

Fruit flies are a common problem in the kitchen. They can be difficult to get rid of, but there are a few things you can do to catch them. One of the most effective ways to catch fruit flies is apple cider vinegar

To use this method, you will need a clean jar, some apple cider vinegar, and some paper towels. First, pour some apple cider vinegar into the bottom of the jar. Then, crumple up a piece of paper towel and place it over the top of the jar. Secure the paper towel in place with a rubber band.

The fruit flies will be attracted to the vinegar and will fly into the jar. Once they are in the jar, they will not be able to fly out. You can then dispose of them however you like.

What You Need

To catch fruit flies with apple cider vinegar, you’ll need a container, some apple cider vinegar, and a piece of paper. Pour about an inch of apple cider vinegar into the container. Roll the paper into a funnel and place it over the top of the container so that the flies can fly in, but not out.

The Process

Catching fruit flies with apple cider vinegar is a simple process that does not require any special ingredients or equipment. All you need is a jar, some apple cider vinegar, and a piece of fruit.

The first step is to pour the apple cider vinegar into the jar. You can use any type of jar, but a Mason jar works well because it has a wide opening. Next, add the piece of fruit to the jar. The fruit will attract the fruit flies and they will enter the jar in search of it.

Once the fruit flies are in the jar, they will be unable to escape because of the vinegar’s high acidity. You can leave the jar out for a few days to catch as many fruit flies as possible, or you can put it in the refrigerator if you need to get rid of them immediately.

Results

You will be able to catch many fruit flies with this method, but not all of them. For a more foolproof method, try setting out a dish of apple cider vinegar with a drop or two of dish soap in it. The dish soap breaks the surface tension of the vinegar, and the fruit flies will drown.
