Frugal Friday ~ Quick Tip ~ Fruit Flies Trap

IMG_20131024_180634_145-1The past few weeks I’ve been battling those super annoying little fruit flies.  I swear I take the trash out on a regular basis but those little suckers snuck by me!  I read several pinterest posts about how people kill them.  I found one that worked for me and wanted to share.  If you have a problem, this remedy is totally worth trying out!

All you need is a container (I cut a soda bottle in half and used the bottom).  Combine equal parts of water & vinegar (I used white vinegar) and then a splash of dish soap.   Make sure its mixed up well and leave it alone on your counter.

Wait it out.  This, as usual, is the hard part for me, but after leaving it out overnight I caught three of them and haven’t had a problem since.  I have read where others just kept emptying and refilling their container if you have an issue with fruit flies coming around.

This is now my go to for getting rid of those annoying little pests – and it uses things I already had around the kitchen which makes it even better!

Have you tried this?  What’s your trick to get rid of them?

Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck today – have a fantastic weekend!
