TERRO Fruit Fly Trap - 2 Pack
How It Works
A familiar problem for most homeowners, fruit flies are commonly spotted swarming around kitchen fruit bowls and near garbage storage areas.
TERRO Fruit Fly Traps lure adult fruit flies into the trap using a non-toxic, food-based liquid lure. Once the flies enter the trap, they cannot escape to continue breeding and multiplying. And better yet, gone are the days of unsightly traps — this attractive, apple-shaped trap looks right at home in any kitchen.
Don't let these annoying pests get the best of you — get rid of them with TERRO's ready-to-use, fast-acting Fruit Fly Trap.
Trapping Fruit Flies with TERRO
All stages of a fruit fly infestation depend on moist organic debris to complete the fruit fly life cycle. The non-toxic vinegar found in the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap lures the flies to the traps and eliminates the infestation. Within a few days of placing the trap near a breeding source, you should see a significant decrease in the number of fruit flies.
Fruit Fly Breeding Areas
The key to successful elimination of fruit flies is to locate their breeding source and place a TERRO Fruit Fly Trap nearby. Fruit flies are commonly spotted swarming around kitchen fruit bowls and near garbage storage areas. Place traps behind or under kitchen counters, sinks, dishwashers, near unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables, and any other location where fruit is stored.
It''s as Simple as 1-2-3
- Activate the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap by pulling the leaf-like lid off the base of the trap and exposing the vapor chamber.
- Empty the liquid lure into the trap, keeping the lid open while trap is in use
- Place the trap in an area where flies have been seen and where it won't be disturbed or tipped over
- You're done. You won't find an easier trap to use.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: The insects swarming around my house aren''t attracted to the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap I just purchased. Can you explain why?
A: Often a gnat, drain fly or other type of nuisance fly invasion is mistaken for a fruit fly invasion. As their name suggests, fruit flies are attracted to fruit - they're small, winged insects typically found around ripe produce in your kitchen, near garbage cans and open bottles of wine.
To determine what type of infestation you're dealing with, simply place a TERRO Fruit Fly trap near the area where the insects are swarming. If the flies aren't attracted to the lure, you're most likely not dealing with a fruit fly invasion.
Q: How do the TERRO Fruit Fly Traps work to control fruit fly invasions?
A: All stages of a fruit fly infestation depend on moist organic debris to complete the fruit fly life cycle. The non-toxic, food based liquid in the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap lures adult flies into the traps. Once the flies enter the trap, they cannot escape to continue breeding and multiplying.
Q: How long does it take to get rid of a fruit fly invasion?
A: The key to successfully controlling a fruit fly invasion is locating their breeding source and placing a TERRO Fruit Fly trap nearby. Within a few days of placing the trap near a breeding source, you will see a significant decrease in the number of fruit flies.
It's always a good idea to take some preventive measures and eliminate common breeding sources, such as overripe fruit and trash, whenever possible.

Fruit flies began popping up everywhere, flying in front of my face when I was doing dishes, in front of my computer screen in a dark room, landing in my coffee cups every morning when I wasn't looking, and of course, a dozen would launch into flight any time I neared the kitchen sink. I began to wage war - I kept my house spotless from food or damp places they could nest. I would lock onto one and stalk it around the apartment, my back huntched, my hands out ready to squash the beast as soon as I got an opportunity. Unfortunately, this was a battle I was losing.
I found the Terro 2500 Fruit Fly Trap whilst googling home remedies for getting rid of fruit flies. I ordered two, and was at first confounded - several fruit flies would land on the outside of it and sit there, almost as if to mock my feeble attempts to one-up them on the battlefield. This continued for several days. However, I soon started noticing the bastards climbing down into the chamber, and now, a week later, there are at least 20 carcasses in my Terro 2500 Fruit Fly Trap by the sink, trapped dead forever in the red liquid, serving as a reminder for every new fruit fly that crawls down the trap - I will be victorious.
After watching this work I made my own traps out clear plastic cottage cheese containers. Make sure the container is washed and clean. Pour about an inch of ONLY apple cider or red wine vinegar in the bottom (Regular WHITE vinegar DOES NOT WORK).Add one drop of liquid dish soap. That breaks the tension of the vinegar and allows the flies to sink and drown. If you don't use the drop of soap the flies can get away. I poked a few SMALL holes in the lid of the cottage cheese container. This lets the flies go in but they can't get back out.
This method is almost FREE. You could also use a container without a lid but I prefer to know the fruit flies are trapped once they enter.
I took her advice, added apple cider vinegar into a cup (or bowl) and it really attracted the fruit flies. However, most of the fruit flies rested on the rim of the cup. So I bought fly ribbon (really sticky paper to trap flies, which is useless alone) and put the ribbon around the rim of the cup!
A PERFECT combination! Fly Ribbon and Apple Cider Vinegar. (See the picture I posted)
I thank the original reviewer for getting me started and eventually leading to the end of my fruit fly problem! Using this combo makes the Fly Ribbon DEADLY! (for fruit flies)
I handled the fly ribbon with my bare hands and the really sticky goo got on my hands. I used oil, soap, and hot water to get the residue off.
I ruined that glass cup you see in the picture, it was too hard to get the residue off the glass so now it has become my designated fruit fly catching cup. I recommend using a disposable cup.
I set it up next to the bananas, and in one day it had three fruit flies in it. There were still several of them flying around, so I left it several more days to see how it worked. It did catch a few more fruit flies, but it didn't attract all of them.
I cut off the plastic wrapper, unscrewed the top, removed the little inner funnel, and dumped the contents out. I refilled it with about 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and added a couple of drops of dish soap to break the surface tension (this keeps the fruit flies from being able to escape from the liquid). After reassembling it, I left it sitting near the bananas. The apple cider vinegar did a much better job of attracting fruit flies into the trap. I haven't seen any flying around, even by the trash on the other side of the kitchen, since I refilled the trap.
I'm giving this product 5 stars for the cute design, and for the fact that it can be refilled at home. I give the liquid inside three stars because it just didn't attract enough fruit flies. So, overall it gets 4 stars from me.
