Frugal Fruit Fly Feast

Mission accomplished!  I’ve been blog hoppin’ for the last few days trying to find answers to my fruit fly fiasco (because blog hoppin’ is much easier, a more productive use of my time, more fun than googling!) and thanks to the WFMW plea from $5 Dinners, I think I finally found it!

Apple Cider Vinegar + Dish Soap = Frugal Fruit Fly Feast

Frugal Fruit Fly Feast = Dead Fruit Flies

There you have it.  No specific measurements… just pour some vinegar and squirt some soap.  Instant deadly attraction.

  1. Yes! It worked for me too! Yeah for an easy way of ridding the little pests! It’s also nice to know I’m not the only one on the front lines against fruit flies!
    Way to go!

  2. How cool! Thanks for sharing! 😀

  3. hummm…wonder if just white vinegar would work??!! I got fruit flies too and only white vinegar!

  6. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I cannot for the life of me get rid of them since an unfortunate incident with some old forgotten bananas several weeks back.

  7. thanks, thanks, thanks, I HATE fuirt flies with a passion thanks you for helping me get rid of them

  8. This is awesome. With our juicer not always getting cleaned right away (it’s like my least favorite job), fruit flies definitely get out of hand.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog:) look forward to reading more of your posts.

  9. I’ve done it with red wine vinegar, but A/C vinegar is cheaper…and I never thought of adding dishsoap! Thanks, I’m definitely going to do this!
