Get Rid of Pesky Fruit Flies

It’s Zippy Tip Tuesday!

Long about midsummer to early fall, I find myself with an abundance of fruit flies in the kitchen. The season’s bountiful harvest seems to set the scene for those pesky little critters, which can become so annoying.  

A quick and easy way to rid yourself of the rascals is to place apple cider vinegar into a small dish (Make sure that you use apple cider vinegar.  I have tried others, and they didn’t work at all.).

Add a few drops of dishwashing liquid.  

Secure plastic wrap around the top with a rubber band.  

Poke a few holes in the plastic wrap and set the dish in your kitchen.

Fruit flies will go in, but they won’t come back out!
