I don’t know about you, but fruit flies in Minnesota are flocking into our home (if that’s what you call a large group of fruit flies). They are so bad that we find ourselves swatting at them because they are starting to land on us. Usually they just stick to the fruit, but apparently they think our bodies are sweet tasting too. If you can’t tell, they are driving us crazy!
So, I pulled out the only natural fruit fly killer I know – my apple cider/liquid dish soap concoction. It seriously works everytime! It may take a few tries or even a few days to get rid of them all, but every morning I find at least over 25 fruit flies floating ever so nicely in the concoction.
Here’s the secret:
Fruit Fly “Remover”
1 small container
Small amount of apple cider vinegar (enough to cover bottom of container)
Few drops of liquid dish soap
Mix together with a few strokes and set out in the open on the counter where fruit flies are most prevalent.
Within half an hour, you will see fruit flies flying around the container. Then they will sit on the edge of the container (as if they question whether they should take the plunge) and then BAM, they do, and they are toast. The life of a fruit fly and this concoction.
Let me know if you try this and let me know the results!
Do you have any other ideas on how to get rid of fruit flies?
