An old trick that eliminates flies and cockroaches from the house


What You Need:

  • Cider or balsamic vinegar
  • Liquid dishwashing detergent
  • A glass bowl
  • Plastic wrap
  • A toothpick


  1. Pour about 2-3 centimeters of cider or balsamic vinegar into the glass bowl.
  2. Add a few drops of liquid dishwashing detergent to the vinegar and mix it gently.
  3. Cover the top of the bowl with plastic wrap, making sure it’s stretched tightly over the bowl’s opening.
  4. Use a toothpick to puncture several small holes in the plastic wrap. These holes will allow insects to enter.
  5. Place the bowl in areas where you’ve noticed flies or other insects. They will be attracted to the vinegar’s scent.
  6. Insects that enter through the holes in the plastic wrap will become trapped in the liquid due to the detergent.
  7. Check the trap regularly and replace the vinegar as needed.


– You can also try using different types of vinegar or fruit juices as bait to see what works best for the specific pests you’re dealing with.

– This eco-friendly trap is a safe alternative to chemical insecticides and can help reduce the presence of flies and other insects in your home.
