- An article from www.boston.com offered readers advice on getting rid of rodents and bugs. The author provides a detailed tip on how to trap fruit files with vinegar, which is noted below.

In the bottle, pour apple cider vinegar (not white vinegar) with a couple of drops of dish soap. The fruit flies swarm to it and can’t get out of the vinegar because of the dish soap.
