Every summer, it’s a battle around here to fight off those pesky fruit flies since we keep lots of fresh fruits and veggies on hand. They always seem to come around no matter how clean I keep the kitchen! A friend told me a trick a few years ago on how to get rid of them and I’m going to show you today! It’s very simple and inexpensive.
Simply fill a cup or bowl with an inch or two of apple cider vinegar. Add in 4 drops of your liquid dish detergent such as Dawn or Palmolive, and stir. Set it out where the flies are congregating and wait. Within a few hours, you’ll notice several flies in the bottom of the cup, dead.
Simple and painless! Sure beats swatting! Do you have any tricks to keep bugs out of your house?
