This is the easiest way to get rid of fruit flies!

Fruit flies are extremely annoying. They’re not really doing any harm to anyone, but they can drive you absolutely crazy when they’re inside your home. Those small, stubborn flies seem to appear out of nowhere and before you know it they’ve taken over your entire kitchen. They’ll take every opportunity to multiply and lay hundreds of eggs in no time at all.

It might seem impossible to get rid of them, but there’s a very simple solution!

Prevention is better than cure

Fruit flies aren’t dangerous at all, but the idea of them munching away on your fresh fruits and vegetables isn’t very nice. And they don’t just eat your fruit; they also love trash cans and empty wine bottles. It seems pretty difficult to get rid of them, so in this case prevention is better than cure. Throw away food scraps, fruit juice leftovers and empty bottles right away into a closed trash bag. Cover up everything in your fridge and on your kitchen counters and keep your kitchen free of stains. Despite all of these measures, fruits flies might still find their way into your home. That’s not too big of a deal, though, because we’ve got a simple trick to get rid of them!

The solution

The solution to your fruit fly problem is probably already waiting for you in a kitchen cupboard. All you need to combat these flies is a bowl of apple cider vinegar with a drop of dish soap. We tried this trick; we made the solution and left it on our kitchen counter over night. The next morning, we saw a ton of fruit flies floating around in the solution! Within a few days, all of the fruit flies had disappeared. Give it a try yourself!
