Beer trap for fruit flies.

Post  walshevak on 4/30/2011, 6:16 am

Just read this tip on Yahoo Green and thought I'd pass it on.


9. Trap Fruit Flies
They say you can catch more flies with honey? Maybe they haven’t tried beer. Anyone with an indoor compost bin or worm farm had probably experienced a plague of fruit flies at some point. But guess what, not only do fruit flies dig fermenting organic matter, they love them some beer.
Try this: Put some beer in a cup; cut the corner off of a sandwich bag and place the cut corner in the cup; folding the rest around the cup and securing with a rubber band. Place the cup in the bin and say good bye to little flying guys.

Cider vinegar with a drop of dish soap (to break the surface tension) works really well too.
