Do you have fruit flies or gnats that you are trying to get rid of? There is a simple solution you can set out to attract those pesky bugs.

You will need Apple Cider Vinegar and dish soap for this bug trap plus a jar or some kind of dish to hold the liquid.


1. Fill a jar or bowl about halfway to 3/4 full with the vinegar.
2. Add a few drops of dish soap into the vinegar.
3. Fill the rest of the dish with water as the soap bubbles fill to the top.
3. The bugs are drawn to the vinegar scent and they get caught up in the bubbles.

This is a great chemical free way to get rid of those pesky gnats plus you can use items you already have on hand.

      I’ve been using this great mixture for years now, and it works so darn well! I keep a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables and typically have gnats, ants, stink bugs, and those fake lady bugs show up throughout the summer months. Little tricks like this have helped me TONS! Now, for the ants, nothing beats buying the ol’ ant terro bait traps, but the others are easy enough to kill off naturally.

      I used just plain apple cider vinegar it works well.

      Also pour bleach down your kitchen sink to prevent new fruit flies from appearing. I could never really get rid of them until I started doing this.

      Also, take a shallow food storage container, fill 1/4 of the way with apple cider vinegar and add a drop of soap. Cover the container with plastic wrap stretched tightly over the top and poke 4-6 SMALL holes (I use a skewer) in the wrap. The gnats fly in, but can’t get out, even if they don’t get in the vinegar. It works like a charm!
