Have you ever had to deal with fruit flies? It’s so hard to get rid of fruit flies. Regular flies … at least you can use the swatter. Fruit flies are a whole different story. They’re tiny and everywhere, and so hard to know what to do with them.
I recently canned a bunch of pears and pear jam with my mom. It was great fun. However … the 2 boxes of pears we got brought a LOT of fruit flies along with them. This led my husband and I trying to figure out how to get rid of them. My husband found a solution we tried out, and the situation is getting SO much better … like, it’s pretty much not a situation at all any more.
How to Get Rid of Fruit Flies:
What you’ll need:
*1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
*2 tsp dish soap
Mix the vinegar and dish soap in a small glass cup.
Cover with plastic wrap secured with a rubber band.
Use a fork on poke holes in the top of the plastic wrap.
Set the glass on the counter and the flies will go in and sink to the bottom.
