Sometimes I get frustrated with pinterest. Things get pinned and repinned and then you pin them and then you finally get around to trying them and the result is only good for laughs on a fail blog. Extremely frustrating.
A while back, I saw someone had pinned a blog post about creating a fruit fly trap. It's an awfully pretty picture that's on that post and the pin has definitely made the rounds.
Our town is dealing with a lot of fruit flies right now. Seems like everyone I talk to is complaining about the fruit flies or refusing to buy bananas because they want to stay fruit fly free. Well, one of the few foods Secora can/will eat consistently these days is banana, so there's no way we're going to stop buying them. I decided to try out that fruit fly trap and see if it worked.
The premise is simple: put a piece of cut fruit in a jar, roll a piece of paper into a funnel (I probably should have rolled it a little tighter so the bottom opening was smaller), put the funnel in the jar, and tape the edges
