    How do fruitflies get into a previously fruit-flyless house? I don't have fruit sitting out, or dirty plates. Do they spontaneously generate? I guess my pings will be happy, though! Aprilh

    hehe Dunno, for some reason that struck a cord and got a good chuckle out of me.

    Fruit flies can breed a good number of places. Say, in your plant pots. I know that fruit flies seem to just luuuurve some of my pots. Works for me, though: helps feed the little guys.

    That's what I tried for these little white bugs that grow in the sphagnum moss. They work for a certain amount of soil volume. In the 1.5" deep trays I have full of sphagnum, I used to have a lot of probs with the bugs. I let some utrics take over the trays, and I barely see them anymore.

    AprilH: Fruitflies have similar properties to socks, watermarks, and car keys...that is that they can indeed spontaneously generate/dissapear.
