A loyal reader suggested I share tips from the resident agronomist.
The people he worked with always called him the walking encyclopedia!

HOW TO GET RID OF FRUIT FLIES
Ugh, bring in fruit/veggies from the garden or the store,
and the fruit flies tag along.
A natural way to collect these annoying critters
is to make a trap.
Take a short glass and place a piece of fruit inside.
Most fruit will work, but bananas seem to work the best.
Cover with plastic wrap. Most will cling to the glass, but use a rubber band if needed.
Poke two small holes in the wrap over the opening of the glass.
Place glass in area close to the fruit flies.
The fruit will lure the flies in and trap them inside the glass.
Empty glass and change fruit as needed.
