    Soda bottle - Apple Cider Vinegar - Tape:

    Also make sure that you look around the house and see if you can determine which area they are staying in and there is something in that area that is growing them, feeding them, or attracting them. Some culprits are rotting food (Banana and Apples), Soil in Plants, Drains in sinks, vent under fridge. Clorox any areas that may be culprits (* Add fresh soil to plants or tiny bit of dry mulch).

    And a dumb thing that actually works is to spray them with Dow Scrubbing Bubbles. Something in that spray makes them drop out of the air and you simply wipe them up.....

    Get several small glasses, fill with a little wine, cover with plastic wrap, and secure with elastic bands. Poke very small holes in the wrap, and place them scattered around the kitchen. Now be patient and wait, they'll smell the wine, go in and can't get out, and then they die. Give it about, 3 to 4 days.

    If you don't want to use wine, use vinegar an a piece of cut, soft fruit.

    Get a Fly Banner from a hardware store and hang up where they are. It is supposed to catch flies but does a great for fruit flies also.

    A packet of yeast, a little sugar and warm water in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, put a hole in the top and wait for them to come.

    A little dish detergent (keeps them from crawling out) & wineor sugar (sweet from wine attracts them) into a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and make small holes. Make a few of these and put tbem in several places. You will be amazed at how fast these little critters crawl in. Always check for rotten potatoes, bananas & other fruits. They're the cause of fruitflies. Good luck!
