apple juice is full of sugar - and that grows bugs. So you can't use it to clean with. Vinegar has eaten up all it's sugar in a fermentation process. Never heard of killing flies with it - but I'd imagine if you spray it on them with dishwashing detergent added, they aren't going to be happy in either case.

Any of that fruit juice will draw them in ... it's the dish detergent you add to it that kills them...

No--apple cider has far too much sugar, which is exactly what attracts fruit flies. If you don't have vinegar, use rubbing alcohol.
