TERRO Fruit Fly Trap
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.

11 days later. I pulled in to the driveway remembering with the thought of Natty lights and boogy boarding still in my head. Nothing could have prepared me for when I opened the door to my apartment.
As I opened the door, I felt like I was suddenly placed on the front lines of war. It had been a hostile orgy takeover in the 11 days that I was gone it went from a handful of fruit fly's to what seemed like hundreds if not thousands everywhere.
I immediately got on amazon and typed in fruit fly traps this was my first result.. I noticed a lot of people suggesting other home remedies. Let me just say... Ain't no body got time for that!! I needed traps and I needed them now.
When they finally arrived, I felt a sense of relief or as if backup finally reached my platoon as rations were low and moral was dropping. I set them up immediately and thought to myself now we have a war.
At first, nothing happened and I was highly disappointed amazon would let me down. I went to bed thinking that night of myself being a huge failure and even thought about just leaving my furniture and appliances behind in the morning because it was a lost cause.
The next morning when I woke up, I noticed a new freshness in the air. As I approached the battlefield, there were hardly any fruit fly's in sight. I went over to where I placed my traps and noticed at least 10 sitting on each trap and the hundreds that were already in the trap.
I had finally did it. War isn't won in a day and Rome wasn't built in one either. As the days trailed on there were less and less fly's and maybe a few stragglers here and there that suffered from the swat of a hand.
If it wasn't for the Terro fruit fly pack I would have lost everything in the Battle of the fruit fly 2016. So to you Terro I say thank you and I highly recommended it with 5 stars.
Very simple product to use just peel off the top pour the juice in and place it in an area where there is a problem
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
When the fruit fly enters the trap and touches the liquid, the surface tension is broken and the fly becomes trapped. Flies that are not attracted are likely similar-looking flying insects such as fungus gnats or drain flies.

While I can't say for certain it did the trick, there are now no longer any flies in our kitchen. There were a couple other changes we made around the same time, which included moving our fruit basket into a room further from our (lidded, under the cabinet) green waste. The weather also has been quite cold and rainy lately, which may have had an effect. There's not enough data here to make a solid correlation, and I'm certainly not going to purposefully re-introduce flies to my kitchen to run more tests, so I suppose my star rating is either for being effective or bringing me wonderful luck. I'll try to update if the flies return, but I'm really hoping they won't. In any case, if you have a fruit fly problem, this may be worth a shot.
It's worth mentioning that the trap itself isn't the prettiest thing to look at, I would've preferred something that was plainer. Since this is now stored in a smaller room off our kitchen, I don't mind.
We apologize that the desired results were not seen when using this trap. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 so we can better understand the situation and provide assistance. This product is covered by a 30 day satisfaction guarantee.

Terro 2500 Fruit Fly Trap; used as directed, caught 2 fruit flies
Fly Web Fly Trap; large plug in light based trap with sticky pads, caught 11 fruit flies
Fly Paper Strips, Fly Catcher Trap, Victor Fly Bait 4 Pack; the old standby, not attractive but effective, caught at least 32 (perhaps more)
The Terro product did not perform as well as the other two products we tried, but no telling how many it would have caught if it was the only product we used at that time.
We are sticking (mild pun intended) with the Fly Paper Strips going forward.
