Frugal & Natural Pest Control: Fruit Flies & Ants Be Gone!
Goodbye, fruit flies! Paula Taylor - I did this with a 2 liter coke bottle cut in half-ish. Turned the top of the bottle upside down into the opening of the bottom half of the bottle. Put the paper in it with a very tiny hole, just big enough for them to get in but they couldn't figure out how to get out, then when it got "gross" with bugs (some probably did multiply but I didn't have any flying around) you can just take the whole thing to the garbage, pitch it and make a new one!
How to Get Rid of Gnats
Gnat trap! Get a small container (such as a shot glass). Pour in some red wine until it's about three quarters full. This is a great way to use up that leftover wine in the end of the bottle. Add a drop or so of dish soap and stir it in gently. Leave it out. Soon enough thousands of gnats will be attracted to the wine. They try to sit on the liquids surface, but the dish soap breaks the wine's surface tension. Because of this, the gnats fall straight through and drown.
