flys in colonies


Recommended Posts

Remove the food that the fruit flies are after, for a couple of days. Don't leave moist food or fruits for longer than overnight. Sometimes, I make a trap with something even more appealing than the food that the flies are drawn to, after the trap has many flies inside, I put a cloth over it and bring it outside. I will do this several times a day, and it is pretty effective for me. I keep mantids and will put one in the trap, the mantid won't eat nearly enough flies but at least they can have a good time while I trap the flies. :P

Regardless the best way to deal with either of them is to let the colony dry out for a few days and remove all moist foods. Make sure there are no dead roaches either. At the very worst, remove the roaches and change the substrate.
