How to Make a DIY Fruit Fly Trap

Make a DIY Fruit Fly Trap and keep those winged pests at bay! 

It’s technically winter, but you wouldn’t know it here in Southern California. Sure, we’ve had a bit of rain and temps under 60 degrees, but overall it’s been a warm couple years — all year round.

While that’s great for trips to the beach, it makes for a bad situation with pests. We’ve been seeing fruit flys and ants hanging around the kitchen (uninvited!) even at the peak of winter (December-February). This DIY fruit fly trap really saved our skin, and thinned out the bulk of the winged pests.

Whether you need this DIY fruit fly trap now or in a couple of months, give it a try! Requiring just three simple steps, it couldn’t be an easier design. Best of all: Guaranteed to keep your fruit fly-free and give you peace of mind.
