{chemical free} fly trap

I saw this on the Internet a few months ago...probably on pinterest. Now I make them frequently to sit by the fruit bowl and catch fruit flies. It works like a charm!

Put some fragrant fruit in the bottom of a jar.

Roll a paper plate or piece of paper into a cone and tape secure with just a small opening on the skinny end.

Insert the cone into jar and press down to be sure there aren't any open spaces between paper and jar. You don't want them to escape!

Then, just sit back and watch the stupid little things fly in and get stuck! Viola!

To empty the trap, go outside and let them free (if you're nice) or rinse them down the drain if they are dead (if you're not as nice).
