YouTube user spytrips shares a simple and easy way to get rid of fruit flies in less than five minutes.

Now you may wonder how these little insects end up on your fruit in the first place, but as it turns out, fruit flies follow you home from the grocery store (already on your produce) or slip their way onto your ripe fruit though the smallest cracks or screens, according to About.com.
