Maker’s Tip #3: natural fruit fly trap

It’s getting warmer. The fruit flies are coming. Trap them by mixing some wine, white sugar, and dish detergent. Stir like mad until bubbles form and solution is well mixed. The dish detergent makes sure that the little buggers can get in…. but they’ll never get out….


Try with vinegar if you find it too hard to part with the wine. I’m warning you now that it’s not as effective though.


Approximate proportions:

Wine/ vinegar    1/4 cup

Sugar                    1 tablespoon

Dish detergent   2 squirts
