Best Ways to Kill fruit flies

Apple Cider Vinegar

There is an easy way to DIY a fruit fly trap to get those pesky bugs out of your home. All you need is apple cider vinegar and plastic wrap. Put apple cider in a shallow dish and fill it up. Place a sheet of plastic wrap over the dish tightly. Then, poke holes in the plastic wrap with a toothpick or something pointy. Don't make the holes too big though. The point is for the flies to be attracted to the apple cider vinegar, wander under the plastic wrap and then be unable to get out.

White vinegar

Fruit flies usually like to hide in areas with a lot of moisture, such as your sink drain, shower drain, toilet and garbage disposal. There's a quick way to flush them out using white vinegar. To get rid of them immediately, boil a pot of white vinegar and pour the hot liquid into the drains. This will kill them immediately. If you don't have white vinegar, you can just boil water and do the same thing.

ACV and Dish Soap

Turns out you can actually catch quite a few fruit flies with vinegar, no honey involved. Simply put a couple inches of apple cider vinegar in a shallow glass and add a few drops of dish soap. The dish soap should float to the top, so that when the fruit flies land to drink the sweet vinegar, they will become trapped in the dish soap and suffocate. It's a little grim, but it works. Leave the solution out for a few days and dispose of the remnants in the sink.
