I don't think bug nets would work on fruit flies. Pantyhose would though. Plus it's cheap.
Also, pesticide doesn't work well with fruit flies or w/e these things are. I know I used to get em bad when I lived in NY in the fall. They aren't like other insects where you can locate where they're coming from and kill them there.. They seem to appear out of thin air.
It helps to keep fruit in the fridge at all times though, bleach your sink (especially the drain, they love it there), and take out the trash daily, especially if there is any rotting food.Edited by Backfat - 2/10/11 at 1:17pm
