Growing local

http://abc.net.au/news/2016-10-11/new-fruit-fly-trap-will-save-fres... Read the article about this. I wonder how much it will be. Surely as it is a product of a respected Uni it should work. It would be a huge boon to not only Organic Gardeners but also the general public, as conventional farmers will be able to grow fruit, etc. without poisonous sprays and this will not only make the produce cheaper but also much healthier. I do hope that this works and is affordable for the average grower.

I want it!!! I have fruit fly traps up everywhere and am fairly isolated but the buggers still get my fruit.  Latest victim (and I caught it in the act and squished it) was a spaghetti squash!!

I would be interested in trying this out if not too expensive, seeing that I am turning out yard into a Fruit Forest.

There's other non-toxic traps e.g. using Vegemite as an attractant. His sounds like a brilliant idea; I hope the traps are available commercially for we backyarders sometime soon.
