Best Way To Get Rid Of Fruit Flies and Gnats. The best way for keeping them at bay is to store fresh fruit in sealed places. But that is not always possible. If you are invaded with the pesky flies try this. It works.
In a small bowl or bottle mix wine or apple cider vinegar with dish soap and sugar. Mix two tablespoons of vinegar, one tablespoon of sugar, a few drops of dish soap, and half a cup of warm water into a container and mix until the sugar starts to dissolve. Place it around where the fruit flies gather.
The soap breaks the surface tension trapping the flies when they come to eat.
