    I just had this problem. I used 1 tsp apple cider vinegar and 1/3 cup apple juice with plastic wrap stretch over the surface of the cup or bowl and holes poked through, to allow the fruit flies to enter. It definitely works.

    I find these fruit flies flying around my kitchen when I have an opened, uncorked bottle of wine on the counter.
