Fruit flies may be tiny, but they can still be a real nuisance. They are prolific breeders meaning that they just seem to keep remerging no matter how many you might appear to kill. You could spray with a bug spray every day only to find it does nothing to diminish their numbers.

Another way to get rid of them is to create a trap. This means you can have a more or less permanent trap in key positions around the home and you won’t have to use chemical-laden bug repellants and sprays. You can even make fruit fly traps yourself at home, and here’s a few tips on how to get the best results.

1. Wine Bottle

Most of us have a wine bottle or two lying around the home somewhere. If you don’t have an empty one then few would complain about needing to drink the contents. They are one of the easiest of things to use to make a fruit fly trap with and they are also reasonably effective.

All you need to do is to make sure the bottle is cleaned first and then add the bait. The fruit flies will be lured in through the top by the aroma of the bait and they will hopefully become trapped. You can also try using bottles of different colors for added aesthetic appeal.
