Fortunately, there is a way to reduce their numbers in your kitchen and throughout their home without resorting to chemicals. A homemade fly trap is easy to make – all you need to do is pour some apple cider vinegar in a small jar or bowl, adding just enough to cover the bottom, and add a few drops of dishwashing liquid.

The pesky insects won’t be able to stay away and you’ll soon to be able to relax and enjoy your meal in peace.
