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

Got a question about this project?

    What does the white paper do?

    white paper acts as a pathway and channel to lead the flies into the bottle. and since the channel gets so narrow the flies find it hard to find there way out whilst it was easy getting in in the first place.

    Great idea for fruit flys. For ants try corn meal, not corn startch. They like it but can't digest it. and it's safe.
