How To Eliminate Fruit Flies

Every year, late summer the same drama: fruit flies. Hesitation about what fruits to buy, how many fruits to buy to eat them quick enough before they strike your kitchen.

Here is something that helps (at least it does for us). A couple of years ago out mum showed me mixture that attracts and kills them:

  • 75ml Fruit Juice (preferably apple juice or any juice that has a yellow shade, though I also heard red wine works great )
  • 1 Tablespoon Vinegar (I use vinegar essence)
  • 1 Tablespoon  Lemon Juice 
  • 3 Tablespoons Dishwashing Liquid
Put all ingredients in a cup or glass and place it somewhere in your kitchen. It helps if you put close to the spots where most of the flies are. The flies get attracted to the smell and color and fly into the glass. 

All measures are approximate measures. It is not necessary to use a lot of juice. Make sure kids can't reach it! And of course....... don't drink it.
