You know fruit flies? Those tiny little bugs that buzz around your produce? They have a way of appearing out of nowhere and they basically taking charge of your kitchen. The best way to prevent them is to seal your fruit up in the fridge instead of leaving it on the counter. But when you’re waiting for things to ripen, you can’t always do that. When fruit flies come around and won’t buzz off, here’s how you can get rid of them.
1. Unfiltered Cider Vinegar
Here’s our old friend, vinegar again! Pick up some unfiltered applecider vinegar and take off the lid (if you have a bottle that’s almost empty, that will work too). Cover the top with plastic wrap and seal it off with a rubber band. Poke a hole in the plastic, and the flies won’t be able to resist that fruity, vinegar scent. They go in the hole but can’t find their way out. Voila! No more fruit flies.
