Marsha's notes for this recipe:
Hate those pesky little flies that breed worse than rabbits around ripening fruit or your trash can? Here is an easy remedy.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Pour some beer, it works best, or cider vinegar in a mason jar. Add a few drops to the top of liquid. Dish soap drowns the flies faster.
If you don't want to look at the drowning flies, wrap the mason jar in a pretty scrapbook paper to match your kitchen

It really works.

I have used this idea before and agree completely that it works. I always used a small bowl, but I really like the idea of the jar. So, do they just fly into the little holes in the top.

Yes and then you are looking directly at floating dead flies, yuck.
