  • Get a small container or small cup & poke small holes in the lid (or use plastic wrap if you have to) Then put some apple cider vinegar in the container. They love that stuff. They won't be able to get out of it.

  • Vinegar and a few drops of dish soap, skip the plastic wrap. The soap keeps them from getting back out of the water, so it catches more.
