Fruit flies may not bite but is annoying and are just as dirty as it other germ-carrying insects. When they are fully grown they can even be very gross, especially when they come in swarms.
Thankfully there is an easy, and all-natural solution to get rid of these pesky creatures.
Jumblejoy.com shared in a video clip that the main ingredient to the homemade fly bait is most likely in your pantry. San Diego, CA
“You might have heard tips such as disposing of all your rotting fruits and vegetables, empty and clean trash and recycle bins frequently, replace old sponges and mops often, and fix slow drains and plumbing. Although those fixes may work temporarily, it does not get rid of the problem. If you have reached your limit with these nuisance pests, grab some apple cider vinegar, plastic wrap, a device to poke holes—a toothpick or comb—and a bowl or cup.”

Mommypage for its part shared a different hack this time using fruits.
“If you have a problem with fruit flies, for example, then cut up some banana and mix it in with some leftover mango peels. Place this mix into a plastic container and cover it with cellophane. Poke a small hole in the cellophane that is big enough for the fruit flies. They will all get trapped inside and you can just toss the container away!”
