When fruit flies invade our homes, it can be a real nuisance and sometimes it seems impossible to get rid of them.
But a woman came up with an ingenious trick to get rid of them.
Fruit flies can lay up to 500 eggs at a time, so if you find several buzzes around your kitchen, it shouldn't surprise you.
After hatching, the larvae delight in their sweet surroundings (such as overripe food), and then hatch a few days later.
Flies can mate only two days after reaching adulthood, so it is important to try to get rid of them as soon as they appear to avoid a complete infestation, reports the Manchester Evening News.
Now Tina Smith, from Dublin, has shared her brilliant way of eradicating fruit flies, and it will only cost her a few cents.
She turned to social media to reveal how an old trick had done wonders.
By posting on Facebook, he showed how he had filled a cup with apple cider vinegar and covered it with an adhesive film that had been punctured with small holes to catch the annoying flies.
She captioned the image: "Is anyone else receiving these horrible little things? I have no fruit and I'm getting them, disgusting."
It is said that apple cider vinegar attracts flies with its sweetness, which makes them fly through the holes and cannot escape.
Speaking to RSVP Live, Tina explained how the hack had started working almost immediately.
