You probably already know to wash or rinse fruits with edible skins, such as apples, pears, grapes, peaches, nectarines, and plums. Don't stop there!

I am laughing (in a good way).
All this good information to eliminate fruit flies and here I am trying to raise fruit flies to feed to a tiny Gecko. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Seriously. I have been researching how to make the culture to grow the flightless fruit flies for the teeny tiny lizard.
Paying over $5-$6 for a vial of fruit flies seems ridiculous when the rest of the normal people are trying to discourage the little buggers.

I believe you, Greene. It's just that your comment threw me off guard. It gave me a totally new perspective about fruit flies that I'd never thought of! A bit off topic, but related. Ever so often I'll catch an episode of DIRTY JOBS hosted by Mike Rowe. There was a episode about a small company raising maggots commercially to be used to make BIRD SUET. It was very informative. The process was pretty lengthy and the finished product was costly. I understand where you're coming from. Big Grin

A very simple solution. I was wondering why I haven't been seeing as many fruit flies. I started washing bananas as well as the other fruits lately. Whoda thought? Thanks!
