How to get rid of fruit flies

This summer our kitchen was filled with pesky fruit flies! A friend of mine at work shared a tip with me on how to get rid of them and I would like to share it with you!

In a small bowl or ramekin, mix together apple cider vinegar and a little bit of dish soap.

Place the bowl or ramekin in a high traffic area of fruit flies and wait.

The flies are drawn to the sweet smell and will eventually drown when they go to drink the vinegar.

I believe the soap makes it harder for them to escape.
