Spice bottle Fruit Fly trap.

Because we buy all organic produce we sometimes get a few hitch-hikers and well, other little critters that like all organic produce.

Right now, it is Fruit flies: Drosophilidae.

After reading that they are attracted to fermenting food, I tried organic apple cider vinegar. It worked!

Cut a corner off off a plastic bag, cut off 1/2 inch of the tip to make a funnel.

Place the funnel into the spice bottle and snap the plastic thing with the holes over it.

Do not for get the cider vinagar.
