DIY Fruit Fly Trap & Family Table Tuesday #11

I don’t know about you, but those little fruit flies get on my nerves. I’ve tried the apple cider vinegar and upside-down cone trick before, but was met with little success. Those pesky little things always graviate towards my compost bucket. So what did I do?

DIY Fruit Fly Trap

Step 1: Take some produce scraps.
Step 2: Put them in a jar.
Step 3: Cover the jar with plastic wrap.
Step 4: Poke small holes in it.
Step 5: Fruit flies will be attracted to this, well, like FLIES! Take it outside to release them, and get rid of those pesky suckers!
