Get Rid of Fruit Flies {DIY Fruit Fly Trap}

We have had a fruit fly outbreak, so instead of using the sticky fly traps that we've used in the past, I gave this fruit fly trap method a try. It worked perfectly!
All you need is a jar, a piece of paper, apple cider vinegar and liquid dish detergent!
Time: 2 Minutes Difficulty: Easy

    Put an old banana peel in a zip lock baggie. When the flies build up, slam it shut and crush the flies. By the way, the bananas are how they got in, in the first place. If you keep bananas out for very long, the flies in them hatch. I know... ewww!

    Does anyone know of a way besides using bleach to get rid of drain flies? We had them pretty badly about two years ago and even set off bug bombs. These helped some but were told by someone to pour a cup of bleach in every drain once a day. This actually worked and after about two weeks they were all gone. Is there another way?
