Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Did you know you can kill those nasty fruit flies or fungal gnats in a snap? Here is what you'll need...
3 -4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 piece of white paper
1 -2 drop liquid dish soap
1: Pour apple cider vinegar and drop of dish soap into glass or jar.
2: With the paper, make a cone with a 3/4-1" hole on the bottom. The cone should sit on the glass rim without the tip touching the vinegar. You may have to squeeze-shape the cone a bit to prevent gaps between the paper and rim.
3: Every day or two, switch out the vinegar. (You'll see when it stops being as potent. The flies/gnats will stop going in.).
