What about fruit flies?

Fruit flies can be a nuisance in the warmer months of the year. To help manage them we recommend the following options:

  • Wash your pail after each collection day with hot soapy water.
  • Set a jar trap to capture the fruit flies using a jar with a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinager in it and add a few holes in the lid.
  • Keep your organics in the freezer until collection day
  • Keep your lid flat on your pail to create a better seal
