Perhaps your mom has told you that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, meaning that being nice will gain you more friends than being rude or mean. But if you really needed to, you'd best put out a dish of sugar water rather than one filled with vinegar, because the latter is likely to repel, repel, repel.
Additionally, what does the saying catching flies mean? Verb. catch flies. (idiomatic) To have one's mouth wide open for a prolonged period. You'd better close your mouth; are you trying to catch flies?
Besides, what Does a spoonful of honey mean?
Tart words make no friends; a spoonful of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar. Being mean will earn you nothing. A little nice will get you more friends than a lot of mean.

Make a trap with apple cider vinegar and plastic wrap. Trap flies with a paper cone, vinegar, and old fruit. Drown flies by leaving out a bowl of vinegar and dish soap. Put out an almost-empty bottle of old wine or beer.
