Hello all

I have found that using a very small net to catch flies with is quite
effective, especially if the net has been soaked in gin.

Best of!

we had good results with juice (e.g., grape) or even better wine or
sparkling wine. Or you can add some of the yeast to the juice and let it
brew. Drosos love alcohol too. The funnels we use were handmade (paper and
glue) so we were able to produce a very small opening.

good luck,

I am currently facing the problem of too many flies loose in my lab. We
been changing a lot of stocks, so there are many that just escape.

Can anyone tell me an efficient way to make fly traps? I am using bottles,
extra yeast paste, with a funnel on the top, but that doesn?t solve the

Can anyone tell me what the best way is?

Thank you all,
