Re: Fruit Flies!!


Fungus gnats are much smaller than fruit flies, and I've always wondered how a fruit fly knows you have fruit..............smell?

The fungus gnats really won't hurt anything, but it's aggravating I know to have them buzzing around. I'd take the terrarium outside, cover the aquarium, and then blast them with raid or something. If they come back when the terrarium comes in then that's most likely the source. Maybe your extension office will have some better solutions.

Subject: [CHAT] Fruit Flies!!


Help! For the first time in my life, my home is infested with fruit
flies. Any suggestions as to dealing with them, short of fumigating
the house? (Not an option, because of the fish and amphibians.) Would
some kind of sticky lure work?
