Fruit Fly Trap DIY

This homemade fruit fly trap only takes a minute to make using ingredients you already have on hand. It works in hours!



  • Pour your juice or wine into your glass container. A couple of centimeters of liquid is all you need.
  • Mix in a couple of drops of dish soap.
  • Secure plastic wrap over the top of the container. Make sure it is tight. A rubber band may help keep the plastic wrap in place.
  • Using a bamboo skewer, poke some holes in the plastic wrap. Make sure the holes are big enough for the fruit flies to get through but don't make too many.
  • Clean the area so only the trap will tempt the fruit flies. Replace every 1-2 days as needed.
