Marsha's Story

Hate those pesky little flies that breed worse than rabbits around ripening fruit or your trash can? Here is an easy remedy.


beer or cider vinegar
drops liquid dish soap
mason jar with holes poked in the lid

Directions Step-By-Step

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
