To make a humane, homemade fruit fly trap, you will need:

  • Piece of paper
  • Jar or cup with a small opening
  • Tape
  • Piece of fruit for bait

Start by rolling the piece of paper into a cone. To form a cone, start pulling two adjacent corners of the paper towards each other, along the long side of a sheet of paper.
