Fruit Fly Trap

We have had a problem with fruit flies in our house for a while. I made a trap a few weeks ago, just a half a lime in a glass bowl with saran wrap over it. Just punch a few small holes and flies get in and can't get out. It works great. Then I had the brilliant idea to just make it out of a half of a melon! I always eat melons like this, so it was readily available, and it skips the step with the bowl! It works fantastic! Check out all the flies we caught!

An empty wine bottle with saran wrap stretched across the top with holes in it works great too.

I need to do this! I finally covered my apples, tomatos and onions with tea towels because we had so many fruit flies! It helps but it doesn't get rid of the ones that are already here!
