What you need:

  • An empty plastic bottle of any size
  • Scissors
  • Duct tape
  • Apple cider vinegar

How to:

First, cut off the top of the bottle about 4cm down from the top. Be sure to cut the narrow section of the bottle, so the upper lid will have something to rest on without falling in.

Fill the bottom half of the bottle with a few ml of your ACV. Invert the top half of the bottle and rest it on the bottom half. Tape around the outer edge to hold it in place.

Your homemade fly trap is done! Place it near windows, bins or in the kitchen and change regularly.
