My mint plant has tiny pests/ insects like fruit flies it's breeding! How to keep these away?

little cup filled 1/4th the way up with apple cider vinegar, stick near plant and they should fall in and drown
Is the soil very wet on top? Fruit fly like bugs usually are fungus gnats. You can let the soil dry out if thats the case, cinnamon dusting the soil can help but I have gone as far as diluting hydrogen peroxide and water to kill the eggs in the soil!
Rub alcohol on it! Hope this helps!
