I Don't Know for a FACT They're Gay, but I'm Pretty Sure

OK. How does one get rid of fruit flies? They came in either on the corn, the peaches or some flowers I put on the table. They are very very annoying. Getting a lizard or frog is not an option.

Raid. (Not the bath-house/police kind...)

I think you have to find the culprit (a tomato? peach?) Get rid of the fruit, and the flies will be gone.

I hate them. Dirty little bastards..

one trick is to make a trap out of like a plastic container. Put some fruit it in. Tape saran wrap over the top and punch some small holes in it. THe fruit flies go in... but this time at my house we used the sticky kind of plastic wrap and now we can see fruit fly maggots stuck in there too. BARFFFF

Are you working towards a Nobel Prize, spy?

A large goblet with a bit of red wine in the bottom. Leave overnight. In the morning, there will be 100 drunk fruit flies floating in the wine. Quickly cover with plastic wrap (the fuckers can still fly out)and deposit outside.
Also, a bug zapper is a lot of fun with fruit flies. Just wave the zapper through the cloud of flies, and some of them actually explode. (From all the sugar in them.)

Real late to the party, but so you know- fruit flies(drosophila) are asexual. They clone themselves. Seriously.

That is why they are so successful at coming out of nowhere- kinda like teen girl singing stars.
