Natural Fly trap

Reposting because the flies have emerged! 

After the months and months of over 105F and no rain. We got 2", and flies. Flies are freakin everywhere! Thick swarms, so I had to do something.

I tried various recipes for traps and repellents. The Lavender worked a bit, but still my home was invaded. This one trap worked the best out of all that I tried.

1 quart jar, with lid
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar

Puncture some medium holes in the lid. Add the sugar and vinegar, then top with water. Screw on lid and place jar where the flies are a nuisance.

Could you use apple cider vinegar?
