This worked for me!!!
Take a little bowl. Add about
1/2 Cup of any kind of Fruit Juice.
then add a Few Drops of Liquid Dish Soap.
Set the bowl on your counter.
Soon you will see the little bugs gather
at the bowl. Be patient. Soon they will
take their last swim. (If the juice is a dark color,
you may need to hold up the dish to see all of them
sunk to the bottom.)
In a short time I had 2 dozen.
Keep the dish set up for a few days, in case
any have laid eggs.
i accidentally brought some in with a houseplant and i use apple cider vinegar and some dish soap,. they like that also.

Drosophila melanogaster (Greek for dark-bellied dew lover : δρόσος = dew, φίλος = intimate friend, lover, μέλας = dark-coloured, γαστήρ
= belly )
is a species of Diptera, or the order of flies, in the
family Drosophilidae. The species is commonly known
as the common fruit fly or vinegar fly.
Starting from Charles W. Woodworth, this species is one of the most
commonly used model organisms in biology, including studies
microbial pathogenesis and life history evolution because they are easy to take
care of, breed quickly, and lay many eggs.
Flies belonging to the family Tephritidae
are also called fruit flies, which can lead to confusion, especially in
Australia where the term fruit fly refers to the Tephritidae, economic
pests in fruit production.
Thanks for the tip Cookjoy! I'm going to try it in the morning after I find some fruit juice,lol!
I hope it works, those things are annoying!
Did you put saran wrap with holes punched in it over the container?
Catmint, no, I just left the bowl uncovered and it worked fine!
I put some apple cider vinegar in a glass and sit a small funnel on top of the glass. They go down the funnel, but are unable to fly back out. This works for me.
