How Do Fruit Fly Traps Work?

Fruit flies depend on moist organic debris. The TERRO Fruit Fly Trap lures adult fruit flies to the trap using a special food-based liquid lure. Flies that enter the trap through one of the many funnel-shaped holes are unable to escape and continue breeding. In a matter of days, you should begin to notice a dramatic decrease in the number of fruit flies around your home.

Locate Breeding Areas

When trying to eliminate fruit flies, the key to success is locating their breeding areas. You’ll typically spot fruit flies swarming around kitchen fruit bowls and near garbage cans. Place traps near kitchen counters, sinks, dishwashers, unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables, or any other location where fruit is stored.

    I have tried several other traps, nothing works like this. Apple cider vinegar comes close, but this is a lot easier to use and looks a whole lot better. I can see the flies on the outside starting to go into the “apple of doom.”Side note: if you have fruit flies, but ALL of your fruit on the counter in zip lock bags or a cooler. I also sprayed the garbage can with Home Defense bug spray to get the flies inside the garbage can – initially there were a lot there.

    As advertised & works the best.

    I had some fruit flies from bad fruit. I went the cheap rout and bought some cheaper fruit fly traps. They didn’t do much. I tried these apple traps and the fruit flies were gone in a day or 2. I won’t buy anything else if I need them again.

    This works!!

    In no time at all we had an INFESTATION of fruit flies. We tried putting salt and baking soda down the drains of the tub, bathroom sink and kitchen sink at night and then boiling hot water several times a day, plus every suggestion (apple cider vinegar, any other vinegar product, lemon juice, several diffent kinds of rotten fruit) we could find but nothing worked. We even called a couple pest control places and they refused to come. It wasn’t until we prayed and then tried grape juice, orange juice and tomatoe juice but mostly this product, that we saw any improvement. We had one of the red deals and a bowl of grape juice in our pantry, two places on our counter top, the bathroom, my office and the living room. It is day 4 and we are down to maybe a dozen or less flies. Thank God for His help with all the above treatments that worked. These little red deals really work!!

    Had a fruit fly issue this fall. I set out two of these and within 2 days they were all gone. Didn’t come back either. Love this product for its effectiveness.

    These do attract them. Read my method

    These do catch them but won’t solve your issue. Definitely good to have on hand.I recently had a gnat or fruit fly issue and felt disgusting and became crazier than a bed bug cleaning like a psycho to my already clean home. I spent 100 bucks on everything in 3 days. I am surprised I didn’t end up in the ER with all the chemicals I used. The vinegar, dishsoap, homemade traps do not work!!This is what works!!!! Get some drain opener. These effers come from the drain and we had a ton of rain. Use it. Clean your entire house with bleach. Put sugar water, soda or anything sweet in an old pan you don’t care about. Put in the oven and leave your oven open overnight. Wake up. Shut the oven. Bake those effers at 450 for 10 min. Gone. Also get the gross fly strips AND THESE to catch the stragglers. Put bleach in every drain to sit at every chance. Boil water on your stove and dump it with bleach down your garbage disposal and run it. Have not seen one since. Don’t use a garbage disposal. They are just gross sorry. Dichotomus earth/bedbug powder/silica powder under your sinks (kills any bugs exoskeleton). You’re welcome.

    Got rid of so many fruit flies with this!

    The lure seems to attract those tiny troublemakers like a magnet.Compared to other fruit fly solutions, this trap holds its ground. It’s simple, effective, and doesn’t involve any fancy gadgets or toxic chemicals.The reason for the 4 stars is that, while it catches a good number of flies, it might not annihilate the entire fruit fly army on its own. It’s more of a soldier than a general.

    I have no idea why fruit flies are loving our house so much – but I have tried all the diy things out there – which have kind of worked. But I finally gave in and wish I would have done it sooner!These traps do so well! Like the first day the population reduced by half. And then less and less each day! Smells just like apple cider vinegar and traps them so much better than the bowls and Saran Wrap methods!Absolutely worth it!

    Works well

    Don’t spill the juice because it’s super sticky. Haha, the sticky is super good for catching fruit flies.Gross, but visiting kids put trash in a clothes hamper thinking it was trash. We didn’t find it until we had friends. During daily cleaning I didn’t think anything about it because we never use it. So I scrubbed house top to bottom and found it.These traps cleared the flies in about 2 days. Thank goodness!!

    There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. . . If she had these I don’t know why!

    These do the trick better than any other thing I’ve used. We don’t get nats often, but it’s never pleasant when you do. These take care of it fairly quickly.

    Really effective

    These traps work. We developed a terrible fruit fly infestation in our kitchen and my old refillable trap just wasn’t making a dent in the problem. The flies were attracted to the traps within minutes of setting them out. After just 3 days, the fruit fly population has been reduced by at least 85% and there are still late-comers circling the traps and will soon be joining their brethren in the Great Drosophilidae Beyond.They don’t take up much room and there’s no offensive odors. Definitely a helpful and effective product.

    We’ve had an influx of fruit flies this winter for some reason. They were getting really annoying so I tried the apple cider vinegar in a bowl covered with cling wrap with holes poked in it and it worked ok. I found these traps on Amazon and thought to give them a go. I’m so glad we did! These are the best. Flies were instinctively flocking to them like the salmon of Capistrano!We’ve only had these traps for THREE days and you can see the results. I placed one near the kitchen fruit bowl, one near some plants, one in the basement living room, and one in the pantry. I’m pretty sure the formula is just apple cider vinegar but it works so well so I’m happy! These are much better and easier traps than Saran wrapped-bowls of ACV!

    Doesn’t last 45 days but still effective

    Kind of embarrassing but this summer we had the worst fruit fly infestation we’ve had. Where it got really bad seemed to be in my 17 year old sons bedroom where he has a whole bunch of apple sauce packets he ate in the trash. These little suckers seem to love anything related to apples. It was bad. We tried apple cider vinaigrette and dish soap, open wine bottles with a little wine in the bottom. Zevo light. EVERYTHING. These are the most effective by far. It is so gross but these have caught so many fruit flies. My only gripe is that the package says to leave them out 45 days. They really seem to lose their effectiveness after about 2 weeks

    It doesn’t work that well

    I gave this a try because the reviews seemed to be a mixed bag. I’d say it all depends on the fruit flies and the area. For some reason, in my bathroom they worked and in the kitchen, not so much. The fruit flies land near it or on top of it as a hang out zone but they don’t go in it and die by the droves like I imagined. I even tried adding cane sugar to the treatment that comes with these. We live in an apartment and believe that the fruit flies are coming from the drain. Still on the lookout for a more effective product.

    Worked amazingly quickly!

    A bad day combination of my ADD and going out of town last minute … and I came home to an infestation of fruit flies. Nothing serious but it was extremely annoying. I ordered these for next day delivery and they were at my house before I even woke up the next morning (all the stores by me were closed). By this evening, the little containers are full and there’s almost no more flies around. There’s a few here and there but I can’t see them flying, they’re just occasionally standing on the little container. I will order more just so I always have these on hand. Fruit flies are super annoying and I never want to be without this product!

    These are fantastic! We recently had a ridiculously insane fruit fly infestation. It started in ONE bathroom (yeah, UGH!), but soon spread to most of the rest of the house. The little pests seemed to be attracted to light, so we left the entryway ceiling fixture on at night and placed five of the traps around the perimeter (on the nearest piece of furniture). We caught several flies–two or three dozen–the first night and even more the second. I’d estimate we’ve decimated 3/4 of the population, so another week should elimnate the rest. (We use fly swatters to thwack any who won’t enter the traps.) The liquid bait smells like, and probably is, apple cider vinegar. [I will clean out the (VERY FULL) traps and refill them with apple cider vinegar + a drop of Dawn (“recipe” from the internet) to see if it’s as effective.] Tip for those purchasing these: DON’T bother separating the top from the bottom. It’s doable, but a bit difficult. Instead, just unscrew the top of the bait bottle and squirt the contents into the top, center hole on the trap. People may try to build a better mousetrap, but I don’t think anyone can come up with a better fruit fly trap. 🙂

    Easily refillable

    After reading the reviews I was expecting these to not be all that great, but the price was minimal enough to experiment. They are great. They easily snap apart and back together for cleaning and refilling, and they work, will get filled up with fruitflies, and they take up little space and can be placed where they’re not in the way. I’ve tried every possible home-made fly trap and this is much superior. Think I’ve had them 2 years maybe.

    I like the design but I must say they are a bit over priced. I see a lot of people commenting of needing to be able to purchase more solution. I can’t believe I have to say this, you probably already have some in your kitchen. All it is, is VINEGAR. Pour a little vinegar in it when needed, apple cider vinegar works great. The o ly thing I really like about this is the size and the appearance. It certainly looks better than a mason jar with plastic wrap full of toothpicks holes as a top.

    Works reasonably well

    I wouldn’t say it’s long lasting but it works to catch small fruit flies. I had around 4-7 flies flying around my apartment/kitchen and bought these to try get rid of them. One trap placed right in the middle of the kitchen caught around 3 flies over a weekend (2 days) but I noticed it didn’t seem to work anymore after that as the remaining flies continued to buzz around. Will switch out the traps and see if that works in eliminating the flies completely. I did like the window view but best way to check how many flies the trap actually caught is to peer into the trap from above.

    No magic here, but it does sorta work

    Lately, we’ve been buying more fruit than usual. Something we brought home must have had a few fruit flies or eggs, so we’ve got some of the pesky critters flying around in the kitchen. It’s not a big infestation, but I do see maybe a half dozen of them a day. So, I’ve tried a couple of things.I made a couple of do-it-yourself traps. There are a couple of them on the internet. It’s apple cider vinegar in a mason jar with small holes in the lid (or a cup with plastic wrap with holes). I made both, and caught a few flies.Then I bought the Terro traps. They are cute and inexpensive. I’m pretty sure the magic “attractant” is apple cider vinegar with some kind of surfactant to make sure the critters don’t float when they hit the liquid. I’m guessing a drop of dish wash detergent would work for that purpose. These also caught a few flies. On several occasions, I’ve seen them land on the lid and walk around for a while and then fly away. I don’t know why they don’t go inside the holes – one of life’s great mysteries.Then I bought a trap with blue light and sticky paper. This also caught a few.The most effective (and most fun) is to use our Dyson stick vacuum. We have white cabinets, so it’s easy to see the files when they land. I’ve observed that they tend to like vertical surfaces and generally orient themselves head-up. They also take off backwards. So, if you get the vacuum running on high and sneak up on them from below, you can generally suck them in. At least for me, this has some entertainment value. My wife tells me that I remind her of Bill Murray in Ghostbusters with that thing. But it definitely does work. Who you gonna call…?Bottom line… I haven’t found any magic solution to the problem. Everything seems to work about equally well. I have my homemade traps, the Terro traps and the light trap all deployed. There is some value in purchasing the Terro traps, because they are the most attractive option. They are also inexpensive. They look like little apples. Don’t get hung up on their “attractant”. Apple cider vinegar and dishwasher detergent should be an effective substitute.Happy hunting!

    I love the set it and forget it aspect of these. They’re cute so they just blend in and every few weeks, we empty it out and fill it up with apple cider vinegar. I know it’s an option to purchase the liquid additive separate but ACV works just fine, maybe better? Idk! Try it out

    Best thing ever

    This year has been so horrible for gnats! I have seen more than I ever had! It was like you see one and then the next day it was like an infestation! I have a Katchy that usually works great but there were so many I was changing the sticky disk every other day and still the pests were everywhere. I even put up the dreaded fly strips. I also had out the vinegar bowl that was matching them. When I say it was bad it was bad! These came in (I ordered a total of 6). I put out 4 the first evening. One in the bathroom, one in my living room and two in my kitchen. The next day there was a drastic decrease in the number of them!! Talk about being shocked! I put two more out in the kitchen 2 days later because I got produce I did not want to have to put in the fridge. Other than the occasional one I see flying around they are pretty much gone! Unless you are within a foot of these you can’t smell them. Even then it’s just a slight vinegar smell. They also are less noticeable than a jar/bowl/cup of the vinegar with plastic wrap. And to be honest it’s also hard to see the floating dead bugs in there unless you’re looking through the clear spots such as the bottoms of the apples. These are going to be my main thing every year when gnats start showing up again. Definitely recommend!

    TRICK to make liquid lure last longer READ

    Does it work ? Yes, but takes a few days to start catching them.Does it catch them all ? AlmostThe liquid lure made them come a running, but took them a few hours to go in the holes of the trap.Trick below to make the liquid lure provided with this product last longer blow.Pop the trap containers lid off that’s provided with this kit, dump some honey 🍯 in first, but only enough to cover the bottom of the container floor.Then snap the traps lid cover back on, now use the lure solution provided, but just squeeze enough out to just cover the top of the honey, doesn’t need to be deep.Bingo ready…Making more traps . I also took a woman’s shaving gel cap lid and made more traps. The shaving cap lid did just as well as the small catch containers provided with this product. Simply I was able to make more traps and make the lure solution provided in the kit last way way longer saving $$$$.Note, I did try to make the home version of this trap with apple cider vinegar and dish soap, tried two different soaps, and even added sugar and the fruit flies ignored the home made version of this trap.But the honey and liquid lure on top snagged them.

    Works – but need a few of them out to be effective

    Definitely works to attract and terminate these annoying little buggers. The liquid has a vinegar-like smell to it but only if you literally have your nose up against it. Otherwise – scentless. In order to get rid of the flies you need to do your due diligence along with using this product. That means: keep your place spotless so the buggers have no food source, tie up your trash bag so they can’t sneak in though the tini tiny edge of your trash can and have a party making tons of squirmy wormy babies (learned that the hard way), and be consistent with using this product by placing a few traps out at the same time to maximize the chance they will find it. Pretty easy to pop the top off, clean out, and refill for round two.Only complaint is that I wish they’d include more of the liquid attractant. I still have a few flying around so I’ll be buying a refill of the liquid. Overall – I’d recommend this product.

    Work nicely

    I had a bunch of fruit flies gathering around the house. And, while these didn’t eliminate all of them, it made the numbers much lower to almost non-existent. The bummer is that once the liquid is done, you are supposed to just throw the plastic things away, I find that to be quite a waste, so I’ve been refilling mine with apple cider vinegar which works just as well to catching fruit flies.

    These work!

    I had a terrible infestation of fruit flies and tried a lot of different things to get rid of them, including a blue light sticky board product that caught a few but not nearly enough. Then I ordered these little red traps, and wow, they work! After several days, only a very small handful of fruit flies remain, down from dozens (the smartest, wary ones maybe learned to avoid the traps). I may refill these traps with a sugar-vinegar mixture. But also now that it’s winter, hoping the few left will die off. These traps are well worth the price!

    Be patient

    The traps work, but it takes time. The first couple of days I was really discouraged because the fruit flies were just sitting on top of the traps and not going in. I’d say it took about a week for a good amount to get trapped inside. These don’t work as well as some of the fancier traps, but they do help. I think adding a piece of rotten banana inside would maybe help speed things along and attract more flies.

    These worked well for me, out of the other things I tried, including a fly strip. PUt one in the kitchen above the sink on the window sill. LEft the light above the sink on all night, and by morning, there was a noticeable difference. Most were gone in 24 hours, and by day 3, they were all gone.

    It Works Immediately!!

    The best product I’ve ever bought on Amazon.I don’t know how. But, I had an infestation of fruit flies. They were not only in the kitchen but, in two bedrooms as well. I cleaned and cleaned. I sprayed Raid and cleaned some more. And they wouldn’t go away. It was like I had an infestation. So out of desperation I purchased these traps. They arrived at 11pm. I immediately put them in the rooms that were infested with them. By 10am the following morning almost all of those fruit flies were gone!I’m so happy.

    It actually works!

    When a swarm of fruit flies suddenly appeared in my condo, I initially bought some sticky-tape traps; then I tried some plug-in blue-light traps; and then I got a couple of traps that were a combination of the two. They had almost no effect. Some collected a couple of bugs, but not enough to make any difference, and some didn’t collect a single gnat despite being left out for several days. This product is the first one I found that was worth buying.I set out four of them in various places in my kitchen, and three days later, they had each trapped and killed, at the very least, a couple dozen gnats. It’s made a massive difference. I refilled them with clean solution and I have no doubt that I will soon be free of the last of these pests.A couple notes:- The smell has not been an issue at all. The strong vinegar smell has not been remotely noticeable, except for when I’ve taken the tops off the traps to fill them or to clean out dead bugs. This product did not make my kitchen smell vinegar-y, even with four of them in the same small room.- When you first set out one of these traps, you’re probably going to notice the fruit flies congregating on the top of it. It will look like they’re all just hanging out on the trap, but none are going inside. It can be frustrating to see, but the trap *is* gradually luring the bugs inside. My advice: Just leave it undisturbed. When you notice the bugs aren’t gathering on top anymore, it’s time to dump out the dead ones inside it.

    Worked somewhat for a few days but they don’t sell refills

    I am going to copy word for word someone else’s review here because I had exactly the same experience and thoughts. So thank you to that original writer.This product worked great!. We had a large infestation all over our home. We bought 6 traps and put them out on the kitchen counter. Overnight several of the traps were filled with flies.We did notice that some flies crawled in and out of the traps so it did not get them all but the majority are gone.These did only last for about 3 days when I noticed the flies were starting to ignore them so I bought apple cide vinegar from the store and refilled them with that.The reason for my 4 star instead of 5 is that they do not sell the solution separately. I feel the traps should be reused if needed, why waste especially when they are made from plastic?

Then I used the last two and have never seen any more flies!My experience was very positive as word for word it simply worked! Thank you!

    Gets the vast majority with ease

    I can confidently say that this trap does not disappoint. From the moment I set it up, I noticed a dramatic reduction in the number of fruit flies that were previously hovering around my fruit bowl and trash can.The trap’s design allows you to actually see the trapped fruit flies floating, which for me, is a clear indicator that it’s doing its job effectively. Every time I glanced over at the trap, it gave me the satisfaction of knowing that fewer of these little nuisances were flying around. Within a few days, I only spotted one or two fruit flies occasionally, which is a vast improvement from the multitude that once took residence in my home.However, it’s worth noting that while it has significantly reduced the fruit fly population, it hasn’t eradicated every single one. But given that I haven’t ventured much into other fruit fly control products, this one certainly stands out in terms of effectiveness.In conclusion, if you’re looking for a solution that will majorly cut down your fruit fly issue, this trap is a worthy contender. It might not get every single fly, but it certainly puts a substantial dent in their numbers. Highly recommended for anyone facing a similar nuisance!

    Terrible at trapping, but great at luring

    This product does not trap the flies whatsoever. The holes on the top are far too large and the flies can just buzz right out whenever they want. The only flies it actually kills are the ones who drown themselves! As a lure, the chemical (smells like mostly apple cider vinegar) works very well, so here’s a breakdown of what you should do:Step 1: Recon-Examine the areas the flies congregate in. Generally this will be places like a produce basket, an under-the-microwave light, the garbage, a compost bucket, and the sink or other moist places.Step 2: Address the congregation areas-The flies are searching for food and water, especially anything sugary.-If they are attacking your produce, determine if there’s any old or broken produce and dispose of it. Place other produce in the refrigerator or inside enclosed (tupperware) containers. Clean the normal produce container inside and out, preferably with a dishwasher or soak in hot water. Clean the areas near it as well. Don’t forget the onions and potatoes you might keep in a different spot! The oven is a great place to store things if you don’t have alot of containers, but be careful that you don’t bring the flies with you.-If they are hanging out by the garbage, empty your garbage/recycling more frequently and clean the receptacles.-If they are in the sink, try to wash the dishes immediately after use instead of leaving them for later.-If they are in your dishwasher, try the above and hand wash for a week instead or run the dishwasher more frequently instead of letting dirty dishes sit.- If you compost, leave the bucket outdoors for a while or stop composting while you deal with the infestation.You get the idea.Step 3: Lure and Kill- If you bought these lures, place them in the biggest offending areas in a prominent place, preferably close to lighting (leave the lights on if you can). You will see the little devils sit right on top or slightly inside the lures. They may also hang out nearby. Now is your time to strike!-Grab a bottle of windex and make sure it sprays a nice mist instead of a jet. Your best bet is to attack while they are grounded, but often the mist will weight their wings down and they will fall to the closest surface. It may take a second squirt but they will die rapidly in a pool of windex.-Don’t go crazy trying to get every single fly as they will settle down and congregate again in a little while.-Be prepared to spray the windex whenever you approach the offending areas. If you’re about to open the dishwasher, rip it open and spray right away! Same for garbage or the fridge.This is a fool-proof way to commit fruit-fly genocide. They are going after essentially dirt and grime so get cleaning! Now is not the time to be eco-conscious and save that bruised apple. Use it, eat it, compost it, throw it away!If you follow this guide your infestation should be under control within 72 hours and nearly/completely gone within a week. Be careful not to reoffend by going exactly back to old habits though!Good luck!

    Catches some but not all

    This did catch some gnats but not all of them. I like the fact that you can refill it.

    Worked ok

    Had a big fruit fly issue in the house. Purchased these and they did an adequate job in the house. Within a few days the percent of fruit flys had diminished. Over the next few weeks it helped to contain them but we never go rid of them all.Did it work – yes. It worked wellIt did not get rid of all the fruit flies thought so dont expect a silver bullet to eliminate all the issue . . . at least we didnt experience that.

    It works with no oder

    I was skeptical, especially considering the bait liquid. I prefer order organic but this often comes with some fruit flies in this area, even if you wash the produce before hand. So I would skip things that should not be refrigerated, like tomatoes and bananas. I stuck one by the fruit bowl, and the first night the fruit flies camped out on the lid of the trap. By the second night they had taken the bait and fallen in. They were gone by the third day and have remained absent through two orders of fresh produce. The bait jar is small and fits in a corner behind the fruit bowl so it is completely unnoticeable.

    It works!

    I used these to replace my homemade fruit fly catcher, and they worked quite well – and look a heck of a lot better! After I ran out of the solution, I just used apple cider vinegar – which is undoubtedly what’s in the solution to begin with.

    I have the plug-in with a blue light and a sticky pad, one of those fan traps with the blue light, a cup with vinegar and a drop of dish soap, and these little apple-shaped thingies are the hands down winners. The fruit flies immediately started gravitating towards these and overnight most of them are now dead at the bottom.

    Mostly for aesthetics

    So here’s the thing, I’ve been a bartender for 10 years, and as a result I have some pretty strong opinions on the best fruit fly traps.These are ok if you want something discreet in your home. They’re not fooling anyone, they’re pretty recognizable as fruit fly traps, but you don’t have to look at the graveyard of fruit flies when you glance at it. That’s about the only bonus these traps have. And I’m saying this as someone who uses them! So that is a genuine bonus.You can make your own with a jar covered in Saran Wrap with a few holes poked in by a toothpick. The “lure” is pretty easy to duplicate as well. A common alternative is distilled vinegar with a few drops of dish soap. Basically, the vinegar will attract the fruit flies who will then enter the trap, and then they won’t find their way out or they’ll get stuck down from the soap.I would definitely recommend making your own fruit fly “lure” when reusing these traps instead of buying their refills. Their refills are EXPENSIVE and absolutely not worth it.If you have a fruit fly problem though and not just a couple pests hanging out in your kitchen, skip these all together. There’s an option called “Fruit Fly BarPro” and they’re about $10/each. These are FAR superior and will create a noticeable difference in one day. They’re a bit intense though, so I only recommend them when you need serious action. Otherwise these traps or homemade traps should more than do the trick!I know how awful having fruit flies around can be, so I hope this helps!

    Works great but….

    Caught most of the flies in my house (and there were a lot…But…I got the 4 pack. It only comes with enough liquid for 1 use each. Then you need to purchase apple cider vinegar and dish soap separately as a substitute for the liquid.My other complaint. The unit is difficult to open (simple fix is to make an easy open tab/or switch) and it gets messy/smelly.

    Noticed a reduction but still have issue areas

    I purchased this because we had a significant fruit fly issue specifically in the kitchen sink. 2 traps were placed directly in the area affected. A reduction was noticed but there are still flies in the area. We may need to add the other 2 but overall effective.
