How to clean the fruit flies in your house with a eco friendly nontoxic bug trap? 1st let’s discuss about the most common natural home solution: apple cider vinegar and dish soap to kill fruit flies. There is a very big issue with these solutions: they don’t work very good. Additionally your room will smell very bad!
Urban legend that doesn’t work most of the times: The easiest and most convenient way to get rid of fruit flies and gnat is by purchasing a fruit fly trap, such as this disposable fruit fly trap. You just need to open the trap lid and place the trap next to the fly-infested area. You should see plenty of dead flies the next day. Create your own fruit fly trap with vinegar, an ingredient that most households should already have in their kitchen. You’ll need a container, apple cider vinegar, sugar, dish soap, and water. First, mix two tablespoons of vinegar, one tablespoon of sugar, a few drops of dish soap, and half a cup of warm water into a container and mix until the sugar starts to dissolve. Next, place the vinegar solution-filled container next to the areas where the fruit flies and gnats are frequently seen, such as the kitchen sink. The scent of vinegar and sugar will attract the flies into the container. When the fruit flies make contact with the vinegar solution, they won’t be able to escape due to the dish soap. Make sure to place several of these traps. One gnat trap won’t be enough.
But the issue is that, most of the times, this method doesn’t work, fruit flies will appear again and you will also have a problem with the bad smell from this “natural” solution. Vinegar is a very strong and pungent liquid – it’s just not fun having that available in the house. Especially if there are kids around. Do you want dead flying insects floating around on their kitchen counter, table, bar, or restaurant?

Fruit flies prevention tip (it’s easier to prevent!) : Clean the counters and desks: Fruit flies don’t need much to survive and thrive. A crumb here, a spill there, and they’re more than content to subsist indefinitely. If you want these winged terrors to pack up and hit the road once and for all, you’re going to have to deprive them of even that. If you aren’t already, you’re going to have to scrub down your desk every day. Take out your personal trash, too. When you’re done with that, make sure the kitchen is nice and clean before you leave every night. Even if it was someone else’s cleaning week. Yeah, yeah, we know: it’s not fair. But fruit flies don’t play fair, and neither can you. You’ve gotta hit them where it hurts, and where it hurts are those crumbs leftover from the ham sandwich you had for lunch yesterday.
We are a husband and wife duo operating a small business in a small town just 30 minutes south of Boston in Pembroke, Massachusetts. We love hiking – in the above photo, we were at the Montezuma Castle. I love smoothies and Acai bowls, so there’s always a few organic bananas in my fruit bowl. No matter how clean I keep the house, a few fruit flies still find their way in my home buzzing around the bananas and other fruits. They are an annoyance! I tried using apple cidar vinegar and dish soap – and they work great, but the ACV has a very strong smell, and they just don’t look very nice in home…..And the kids have “accidentally” spilled them once or twice. Definitely not fun. Discover more info at Get rid of fruit flies in restaurant.
