  • bowl
  • fruit or food items
  • plastic wrap
  • toothpick or other sharp item
  • dish soap


  • Place some fruit or other food items in a bowl.
  • Add a drop or two of dish soap.
  • Secure a plastic wrap over the top and secure, if necessary, with a rubber band.
  • Poke small holes in the top of the plastic wrap (with a toothpick, the sharp end of a knife, or something like that).


The flies are attracted to the fermenting fruit.  They climb through the holes but can't get out.
The soap should also aid in preventing them from getting out.
