If your fruit bowl has become a holiday destination for fruit flies, make them an alternative they can’t refuse.
Put white or red wine vinegar in a jar with some citrus fruit. Cover it with cling film and poke a few small holes in the top. Remove any other fruit and veg from the room then watch as they flock to get drunk in your trap.
Once you have them trapped, put the jar in the freezer for half an hour to send them to their doom (cue evil laughter).
