Fruit Flies

Even though I consider myself a techie sometimes using a "low tech" method can be most gratifying.
In our house we have lots of fruit around, which comes with quite a few fruit flies. They aren't that harmful, in a house, but can be annoying flying all around.
When I started looking for a solution I ran across someone suggesting taking Apple Cider Vinegar and a little bit of sugar and mixing them together. Then put the mix in a container that you can put a lit on that has a couple small holes in the lid for the flies to get through.
In my case I took a drinking glass, put the mix in, and put some plastic on top, with a rubber band to hold it in place, and put a couple small holes in it. I must say it has been very successful. "Tons" of flies end up in there and a lot less buzzing around the house. So no fancy gizmos or "made for TV" gadgets to waste money on.
I change the mix about every 1 - 2 weeks.
