Lastly, if you’ve got a fruit fly infestation, all you need is a small bowl, a little apple cider vinegar, and some dish soap. Fill your bowl with the ACV and a few drops of dish soap. Stir it up, and put it where you’re seeing the flies. The smell of the vinegar attracts them, and the layer of soap on the surface traps them. Dump out the contents and repeat as necessary.
If you’re trying to no avail to rid your home of pests, you may want to consider calling an exterminator for some professional assistance. But in many cases, a good deep cleaning, some pungent essential oils, and a fruit fly trap or two can go a long way.
