Want to make a fruit fly trap? If you have seen one in action, they are definitely the creepiest creatures around. They’re like winged insects, floating in the jar with your food. Don’t worry though, because their entire life cycle won’t take more than an hour. Here’s how to make a fruit fly trap.
First, you need to mix together a solution composed mainly of water and apple cider vinegar. The water and vinegar solution will serve as a natural sludge for the fruit flies. The idea is that the fruit flies won’t eat the apple cider vinegar since it’s a natural sludge. It also serves as a safety measure so that no one gets too close to the trap. Mix together four cups apple cider vinegar, two cups water, and a half cup of salt.
Next, you’ll want to create a hole in the lid of the plastic container. Drill a few holes in the lid and then stick a dowel in the hole. Now you can place your plastic trap in the hole. The dowel should be buried about halfway into the plastic. Once the dowel is in place, you can tighten the lid. This is how to make a fruit fly trap DIY.

To get started with your project, all you will need is some aluminum foil, a jar, some water, food, air, and fruit flies.
