Copper Chef Reviews How to Rid Your Kitchen of Fruit Flies

Maybe if you’re a professional fruit fly killer, you’ve mastered the timing of the hand clap method. Nevertheless, fruit flies are frustrating and must be eradicated immediately.
Unfortunately, flies of any sort are practically unavoidable in homes. This is particularly true for warmer parts of the year and the country. However, there are three ways to remedy the problem, which Copper Chef reviews in detail.
Method One: Light Traps
The same way that you are attracted to lights and shiny objects, so are flies. Flies are lured into the trap by the appeal of the light. From there, they are either electrocuted by the light or stuck on a glue board that is inside the light trap. Zapping bugs may sound a little rough, but it is extremely effective in ridding your home with bugs.
With light traps; however, you do want to make sure that they are not near windows nor visible from the outside. This is to ensure that new flies are not drawn into the home, thus becoming a never-ending cycle of flies.

You don’t want to risk attracting more flies near the food or even worse, the fly carcasses falling into your prep/eating area.
Method Three: Vinegar or Wine
There’s a reason you see fruit flies mingling around fruit products. This is because the flies are attracted to the fermentation of fruit products. As the fruit begins to age, the more attractive it becomes to fruit flies. For a home remedy, try using wine or apple cider vinegar as a DIY and inexpensive fly trap. Chances are you already have one of these items in your home. You can make a number of traps using just these two ingredients.You can pour either liquid into a small container and cover with plastic wrap held in place by a rubber band. Create small holes in the plastic that are small enough for flies to get into. They will be attracted by the smell and unable to escape.
