We're all too familiar with the hassle fruit flies bring and it's safe to say nothing ruins a bowl of fresh picks from the market better than a pesky swarm. Unfortunately, closing the doors and windows are not enough to keep them out of your home. Don't worry, we've found the answer—here's a step-by-step guide for building an effective trap using only three things:

What you need:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar (You can also use lime juice)
  • Glass or jar
  • Sheet of paper or cardboard

How-to:

  • Find a mason jar with a narrow mouth. Any jar will do, but avoid wide-mouthed pieces so you won’t have a hard time positioning the funnel.
  • Roll the sheet of paper into a cone or funnel, leaving a half-inch opening at the bottom. Make sure it fits well.
  • Remove the funnel and add around 20ml of apple cider vinegar into the jar.
  • Return the funnel and wait for the flies to start swooping in. The scent of vinegar is a hypnotic to most critters and will keep them from flying out of the jar.
  • Throw out the contents of the jar in the garbage. Repeat the process when necessary.
