How come you dont see fruit flies, but if you have a banana theyre around. I know they are attracted to bananas, but where do they come from all of a sudden.

I was joking with the thread topic as I didnt really think thats where they came from, now Im sickened after reading that link.
So I can leave my bananas out until they are ripened then I should throw them in the fridge, then again the larvae might already be there and hatch in my fridge. Looks like an all meat diet from now on.

OMG that was nasty reading.

Does anyone remember the big fruit fly issue we had in southern California in the late 80s? Then they made a song about it called "Fruit Flyra".
