Fruit flies are such a pain, aren't they?!?

What I have done and what I have been advised to do is to take a container, whether it be glass or plastic and put either some fruit or beer in it. Then cover it tightly with saran wrap and puncture tiny holes in the top of it. This attracts the flies, lets them in, and keeps them in. Another method one of my friends told me, it to just have a dish of water with yeast in it. THe yeast attracts them, but it is extremely toxic to them. THey generally die or drown on the spot. I haven't tried that one yet, but good luck, and keep us posted!
