    Something about that method that irks me, though it seems effective... can't the flies get a little... out of hand? Those things drive me insane, constantly ramming into your head and stuff. Little buggers... but yeah I'd imagine CPs would just love you for doing that.

    Nope, it was just a regular old gnat.

    The fruit flies won't like try to eat me will they?

    Can anyone elaborate a little bit more on the smell factor inside a room? Is it tolerable? I am willing to try it outside, but I don't want my room to smell like the garbage dump

    Anyone know if the common house fly will lay eggs in fruit?

    Lol, ok. Joosa, AFAIK, house flies only lay eggs in rotting animal stuff.

    Nope. But I'm positive they'll try and eat your mother.

    Which gives me even more of a reason not to tell her about this.

    Joossa- if you use a banana peel, say, it doesn't smell much at all, like a ripe banana pretty much- the REAL stink will happen if anaerobic bacteria start to grow- just a banana peel in a cup or on a plate will make plenty of flies happy before it ever gets really bad- the story I posted above about the stink geting me in trouble, that was in summer and the rotting stuff had REALLY gone off, so it was hot and stinky, but in winter a single apple core or banana peel will not be much of a big deal- and if it IS too much for you, toss it out and the smell will go away with it
