How to Get Rid of Fruit Flies – One day he goes to the supermarket and buys the freshest and most appetizing fruits, the other has the kitchen – in particular – the fruit bowl surrounded by unwanted visitors. Like any person, the fruit fly also can not stand a well-filled fruit bowl.
Just that is a more mature piece of fruit for it to appear. And of course, never comes alone. It brings with it a whole host of fruit flies. But this could end because we have some tips, very simple and based on products that already have at home, that will help get rid of the fruit fly.
How to Get Rid of Fruit Flies
1. CIDER VINEGAR
That’s right. Even the simplest products that have in the pantry can be good allies in cleaning your home. A little cider vinegar may be enough to get rid of fruit flies.
Just place a container with a little cider vinegar (or can even use a bottle of vinegar), then cover the top of the container or bottle with a little plastic and attach to a rubber band. Open a small hole in the plastic and leave with the fruit. The fruity aroma of cider vinegar will attract the fruit fly and, after entering the container, there is no escape possible.
2. DISHWASHING DETERGENT AND VINEGAR
Alternatively, the still can bet mixture of vinegar(maybe cider or wine) and detergent liquid. Just put a little vinegar and a few drops of detergent in a container and leave it open by the fruit where the flies are concentrated.
Now, once again, the vinegar smell will attract the fruit fly, but thanks to the detergent will break up the surface tension of vinegar, causing the fly to sink into the mix.
3. A PAPER CONE AND FRUIT
It’s not exactly a paper cone and fruit. In fact, it’s a paper cone leading to a piece of fruit in vinegar. This is one of those traps for fruit flies that never fails.
Pour some vinegar into a container (with some height), along with a piece of ripe fruit or that is already rotting. Then make a cone with a paper foil and place on the container opening. The fruit flies army will enter, but no longer exits.
4. RED WINE
As with vinegar, also the wine has an aroma that attracts the fruit fly. So, if you want to get rid of these unwanted visitors, just leave a glass of red wine or uncovered an open bottle in the area where the flies are concentrated and the attraction will be fatal.
