[NAFEX] Fruit Flies (off topic)

Put a large jar with mashed banana in it out on your counter.  Have a few
sticks in the jar to provide perching area for the fruit flies.
Occasionally cover the jar and carry the trapped flies outside.  It's
essentially a catch and release plan.

> Since this is a fruit group, I thought there might be some expertise here
on how to control/get rid of fruit flies out of our kitchen.  We keep trying
to move resources for them, but they seem to keep finding something to
sustain them  (If nothing else is available they'll 'rest' on the Amaryllis
plants I have in the kitchen window).  They're a huge cloud as of now.  Has
anyone had this kind of problem and what was successful on getting rid of
them for you?
