You're aware that fruit flies are tough and hard to kill. So here's a trick to get rid of them for good: place a lemon cut in half on the oven rack and leave the door half open all night. Fruit flies will be attracted to the fruit and will turn around it. When you get up, close the oven door and turn it on for a few minutes. Turn off the oven, let it cool down, put the lemon in the bin and clean your oven.
