How to clean the drain flies in your home with a nontoxic bug trap? 1st let’s talk about the most common natural home solution: apple cider vinegar and dish soap to kill fruit flies. There is a small problem with these solutions: they don’t work very good. Additionally your room will smell very bad!
Urban legend that doesn’t work very often: Drown the Flies with a Candle Trap Setup! This fruit fly trap only requires a candle. When it gets dark, place a candle on a tray or bowl filled with water then set the tray next to the fly-infested area. Next, turn off the light so that the only light source in the room is the candle (close the curtains to block outside sources of light). This homemade trap will kill the gnats in two ways. First, any fruit flies that get close to the candle flame will get theirs wings burnt and fall to their death. Second, some flies may avoid the actual flame and instead go for the reflection in the water. They won’t be able to escape once they land in the water (adding a few squirts of dish soap will make it near-impossible).
But the problem is that, very often, this method doesn’t work, fruit flies will appear again and you will also have a problem with the very bad smell from this “natural” solution. Vinegar is a very potent and pungent liquid – it’s just not fun having that available in the house. Especially if there are kids around. Do you want dead flying insects floating around on their kitchen counter, table, bar, or restaurant?

Fruit flies prevention tip (it’s easier to prevent!) : Clean the counters and desks: Fruit flies don’t need much to survive and thrive. A crumb here, a spill there, and they’re more than content to subsist indefinitely. If you want these winged terrors to pack up and hit the road once and for all, you’re going to have to deprive them of even that. If you aren’t already, you’re going to have to scrub down your desk every day. Take out your personal trash, too. When you’re done with that, make sure the kitchen is nice and clean before you leave every night. Even if it was someone else’s cleaning week. Yeah, yeah, we know: it’s not fair. But fruit flies don’t play fair, and neither can you. You’ve gotta hit them where it hurts, and where it hurts are those crumbs leftover from the ham sandwich you had for lunch yesterday.
UV light attracts the bug: I bet you didn’t know that drain flies, fruit flies, and mosquitoes are attracted to certain spectrum of UV light! Well, they do, believe it or not. Which is why this Eon Luxe device works wonders to attract fruit flies to it, without the need of awful, pungent smelling vinegar. The whisper-quiet fan sucks the fruit fly or gnat into the device: Once they are attracted to the device by the light, the bug starts to migrate near the Eon Luxe device. When they get too close, the fan sucks them. The flies goes through a no-escape cone-shaped vortex: The fruit fly is then pushed down through a vortex that allows entry in, but no exit out.
