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 apple trap.
The 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 fruit fly trap looks right at home in any kitchen.
How to Trap Fruit Flies
All stages of a fruit fly infestation depend on moist organic debris to complete the fruit fly life cycle. The non-toxic vinegar found in the fruit fly apple 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 fruit fly apple trap by pulling the leaf-like lid off the base of the trap and exposing the vapor chamber. Empty the liquid lure into the fruit fly trap, keeping the lid open while the trap is in use. Place the trap in an area where fruit flies have been seen and where it won’t be disturbed or tipped over.
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 fruit fly traps behind or under kitchen counters, sinks, dishwashers, near unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables, and any other location where fruit is stored.

We had a fruit fly infestation horribly bad for about a month. We had tried 4 other traps, and several homemade ones as well. We caught 2 of them with all those out two at a time. When I bought these, I didn't really have any hope they'd work. The next day I checked the traps and there was a full layer of fruit flys. I just ordered a 3 pack to make sure I don't run out if they come back.Date published: 2016-06-26Rated 4 out of 5 by Mar Mar from Works & looks great! So happy with the last 6 fly traps we purchased, we ordered a 12 pack to have one around the trash can and one around the fruit bowl and one at the kitchen sink. These really work well trapping those pasty fruit flies.

I have bought two and I have had them open for several days. How long does it take to catch them bc so far they just like to hang out on the container and I don't see a drastic change in the fruit fly population. It's seems I'm seeing more.Once opened, the traps are good for up to 30 days. Initially, the fruit flies will be attracted to the shape and color of the trap. After some time, the flies will begin to work their way to the inside of the trap. If flies are actively landing on the trap, we recommend keeping the trap out to attract and catch them.Date published: 2016-09-07

- All About
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.
