exactly why is it that dros. are attracted by ethanol vapour?? is it
because it is a chemical scent marker for yeast which they feed on??
and why are they positevely repulsed by organic solvents such as
vanillin and limonene....

any help much appreciated (any papers on the issue also greatly
received...such as follow up to robert dudley's article in new sci,
alcohol special.)
