fruit flies are eating my Aloe plant

topic posted Fri, April 4, 2008 - 7:29 AM by  Roy
I just separated a large baby aloe plant from my friends colossal mother plant and brought it home.
I have been keeping it on my front porch, and there are some free range gnats or very small fruit flies that have been eating holes all over it in only a few days. I have already gotten attached to our new member of the family, so this has to stop!
Does anyone know any good gnat/fruit fly traps that i can make at home?
I don't have any compost around or any other houseplants that they like to eat to attract them.
However for some reason they are still loitering around my front porch.
Thanks for your time!!!!!

    fruit flies are abnormally attracted to brewing kombochu tea. Make a large bottomed, narrow neck bottle into a trap. make sure the tea is very strong in sugars, so they stick to it, and don't come back out.
