    I think that's going to be a challenge because there will be a constant source of new flies, Kristine, but you could try a trap made from yeast. See this: http://lancaster.unl.edu/pest/resources/fruitflytrap.shtml

  • These insects are so tiny;they can get in through windows, doors and cracks. They can detect the smell ofripe fruits and vegetables from a good distance away. Once inside, theyreproduce. The flies seek fermentingfruit on your kitchen counter or any fruit staging area. Any good cleaningsoap, Windex will do clean the sap from the ripping fruit. Sort out ripe fruitoften
