D.I.Y. Queensland Fruit Fly trap ideas to make at home
It is important to note that these recipes shared have anecdotal success, and do not replace the scientifically researched traps commercially available. Home made traps can also catch other insects e.g. other fruit flies and European Wasps.
If you catch a Queensland Fruit Fly in the Yarra Valley please report it to our fruit fly co-ordinator on 0490381999 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We have emergency kits available to help you and your neighbours deal with any Queensland Fruit Fly. Everyday counts – so report as soon as possible.
Honey Bees tend to stay away from Yeast and Vanilla odors, so fruit fly traps are usually no harm to the bees.
Do not use honey in any traps – this can carry diseases that can damage honey bee populations. All sweeteners should be fruit juice, sugar or molasses based.
