Advise please: fruitflies

Dear bloggers, I hope you can help me!

I have heard that there is a gel available to put on the trees that keeps fruitflies away. Has anybody heard of that, and where will I be able to find it. I live in McGregor, Western Cape.

Growing-greetings, Monica

    Hi Monica, Efekto makes an eco-fruitfly bait which worked well for my pomegranates and baby marrows.

    Hi Monica, for fruit flies in my kitchen, I mix cider vinegar with a teaspoon of dishwasher.
    It attracts the fruit flies and they drown. I am sure you could make a larger amount and hang it amongst your fruit trees. I use about half a cup of cider vinegar with 1 teaspoon of dishwasher. Works marvellously well, and no poisons are used.
