Tried It Out Thursday: Simple Fruit Fly Trap

We have been having some fruit fly issues in our house lately.  They are so annoying and just plain gross.  The other day I came home from work to find a small bowl covered with plastic wrap on the counter by the fruit.  I was pretty curious to what it was.  It was my sweet nine year old and she created a fruit fly trap.  She put a small piece of banana in the bowl, covered it with plastic wrap, taped it to the bowl and poked a few small holes in it.  I don't know where she got the idea, but it worked brillantly.  The flys go in through the holes and can't get out. 
This is after just a day.  Check out all the flies it caught.  Our fruit fly issue was solved!
Thanks Kelsee!


  1. Aren't they smart or what. Check my post I am saying something about my 7.5 year old son. Great idea.

  2. Pure genius! I will be using this trick. I am over run with fruit flies every canning season. I love it!

  3. Oh my gosh! They are everywhere here too. They totally gross me out. Your daughter is a genius! I'll try this when I get home!
