Fruit flies might be the most annoying part about warm weather. These common household pests can take over your kitchen seemingly overnight, and they might feel impossible to get rid of no matter how much you clean or take out the trash. That’s where this fruit fly trap comes in.

How It Works

The Terro fruit fly trap quickly eliminates infestations from your home using a closed lure system. Unlike sticky traps, you won’t have to look at disgusting dead fruit flies in your kitchen. This apple-shaped trap blends in with décor, draws fruit flies in, and doesn’t let them leave.

Long Lasting Infestation Protection

This fruit fly trap is designed to fight infestations in your home for up to 45 days. Simply fill the lure with liquid bait and wait. The built-in window allows you to easily monitor bait levels and see how many fruit flies your trap has eliminated.

Why Customers Love It

Amazon customers love this fruit fly trap because of how quickly they worked. Within just hours, customers saw how many flies the lure trapped, and said there was a noticeable decrease in their kitchen. Customers were once again able to leave fruit outside the fridge and open their windows for a cool summer breeze.

The first apartment: We all have one at some point, unless you’re lucky enough to be able to move straight into a well-equipped home. Furnishing an apartment and making it homey and personalized is never easy, exactly, but it’s never quite as difficult as it is in that first apartment, when all you have is empty space to fill and a first-apartment checklist (and probably not a lot of spending money).
