Is there anywhere where fruit flies don't appear at the end of the summer? I just might decide to move there, thanks. I originally posted a fruit fly trap idea here. The only trouble came from the smarter fruit flies who figured out how to get up through the funnel. So I came up with a more effective idea (I think I came up with it; I may have read it somewhere). I just took a glass jar, put a bit of cider vinegar in the bottom (you could also use a fruit scrap) and stretched a piece of cling wrap tautly over the jar opening. I then poked several little holes in the plastic wrap with a toothpick. The fruit flies can get in, but they can't get out.
