A fruit fly trap
With the spring and summer season comes fresh fruits and veggies I am always excited about.
However, I always seem to get fruit flies so I make a fruit fly trap.
It is not pretty by any means but it sure does the trick and gets rid of them.
You will need:
A quart canning jar with up to 1 inch of Apple Cider Vinegar
Several slices of bananas dropped into vinegar.
A funnel made out of a piece of paper I use printer paper because I want it to be stiff.
Put the funnel into the jar about an inch about the liquid in the bottom.
You don't want it to touch or get wet.
Let the paper funnel unroll a little to fit to the jar top.
Tape the funnel to the jar and there you have it.
I like to use packaging tape for a secure fit.
This is what I had in just a short time maybe line an hour later.
The fruit flies craw down the funnel but they cant find the opening to get back up.
I did not take a picture but by morning it was a lot fuller.
When you feel like the fruit flies are under control put the jar in the freezer to take care of the fruit flies and then you can use it all over again.
If you try this come back and tell me how it worked for you.
