Fruit-Flies around the house:
Pour 1/2 - 1 cup Vinegar into a small bowl.
Add 1-2 squirts of liquid dish soap into it.
This attracts the Gnats (Fruit-Flies) and they can't get out because of the soap.
Another trick is to take a jar (or a narrow-necked bottle, such as a plastic soda bottle) and put a piece of banana into it.
Cover the top with plastic wrap, stretching it and holding it with a rubber band.
Poke holes in the top with a toothpick.
Again, they can get in, but they cannot get out. Throw away after 2-3 days.
Also, be sure to keep the drains in sinks & the bathtub drain covered as much as possible.

Fruit Flies around Plants:
Any bug that can suck on a plant can also be controlled by watering the plant itself with soapy water.
The soap does not bother the plant, but the bugs hate it, and go way.
You can also sprinkle detergent on the soil around the plant before watering.
If you're going to use the soda-bottle trap, dig a hole and sink it to ground level around your bed of plants.

Use either of the tricks mentioned above, BUT, use spoiled milk instead of banana's Smile
