Ever feel like fruit flies are planning a full scale invasion on your kitchen?

If you have a compost bin in your kitchen, even one with a lid and any type of filter, it's just nature and it's bound to happen. And there is a solution!

Ready the battlements, because here are some items you can use to make your very own fruit fly trap:

  • a jar
  • cider vinegar
  • dish soap
  • plastic wrap

First, pour a small amount of cider vinegar in the jar. Then add a few drops of dish soap. Finally, cover the jar with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in it. And that’s it!

Once you’ve got the trap set up, you’ll start noticing more and more fruit flies getting caught in the concoction.
