I actually use hairspray. An aresol can works best. Just spray them and as it hardens they can't fly and die. I use it on regular houseflies too.

My husband always puts out a shot glass of alcohol (I think you're supposed to use whisky, but he uses tequilla). We did have to bug bomb the house this time though because they just got so bad (even with no fruit in the house).

empty glass baby food jars and put a slice of banana in the bottom. put saran wrap on top with tiny pin holes in it

apple cider vinegar in an empty beer bottle. Then you make a funnel out of paper with a tiny hole. Big enough for the flies to get into but small enough where they can't get out!
