A familiar problem for most homeowners, fruit flies are commonly spotted swarming around kitchen fruit bowls and near garbage storage areas. Don’t let these annoying pests get the best of you — get rid of them with our fast-acting Fruit Fly Trap.
TERRO® Fruit Fly Traps lure adult fruit flies into the trap using a non-toxic, food-based liquid lure. Once the flies enter the trap, they cannot escape to continue breeding and multiplying. And better yet, gone are the days of unsightly traps — this attractive, apple-shaped trap looks right at home in any kitchen.
How Do They Work?
All stages of a fruit fly infestation depend on moist organic debris to complete the fruit fly life cycle. The non-toxic acetic acid found in the TERRO® Fruit Fly Trap lures the flies to the traps and eliminates the infestation. Within a few days of placing the trap near a breeding source, you should see a significant decrease in the number of fruit flies — and might find yourself humming, “Shoo fly, don’t bother me.”
Easy Activation: Simple as 1-2-3
You won’t find an easier trap to use. Activate the TERRO® Fruit Fly Trap by pulling the leaf-like lid off the base of the trap and exposing the vapor chamber. Empty the liquid lure into the trap, keeping the lid open while trap is in use. Place the trap in an area where flies have been seen and where it won’t be disturbed or tipped over. Relax. You’re done.
Locate Breeding Areas
The key to successful elimination of fruit flies is to locate their breeding source and place a TERRO® Fruit Fly Trap nearby. Fruit flies are commonly spotted swarming around kitchen fruit bowls and near garbage storage areas. Place traps behind or under kitchen counters, sinks, dishwashers, near unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables, and any other location where fruit is stored.

There's something I noticed: Although I've only seen one fruit fly inside the trap in two weeks, I noticed dead/very immobile fruit flies near the trap (My desk surface is white so dead fruit flies are very noticeable), and my fruit fly issue's gone. So I think as a "trap" it is not really doing its job but the chemical certainly works great!

Fruit flies are commonly found in homes, grocery stores, and restaurants; anywhere food may be rotting and fermenting. Most noticeable summer through fall, fruit flies can be a nuisance year round.
As the name implies, fruit flies are attracted to fruits, as well as vegetables, sitting out on store shelves, in bowls in kitchens, and ripening in the garden
How do the TERRO Fruit Fly Traps work to control fruit fly invasionsAll stages of a fruit fly infestation depend on moist organic debris to complete the fruit fly life cycle. The non-toxic, food based liquid in the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap lures adult flies into the traps. Once the flies enter the trap, they cannot escape to continue breeding and multiplying.
The insects swarming around my house aren’t attracted to the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap I just purchased. Can you explain why?Often a gnat, drain fly or other type of nuisance fly invasion is mistaken for a fruit fly invasion. As their name suggest, fruit flies are attracted to fruit - they’re small, winged insects typically found around ripe produce in your kitchen, near garbage cans and open bottles of wine.
To determine what type of infestation you’re dealing with, simply place a TERRO Fruit Fly trap near the area where the insects are swarming. If the flies aren’t attracted to the lure, you’re most likely not dealing with a fruit fly invasion.
