Cherry fruit fly mitigation help - chickens? sticky tape? 1 gal. jug trick?
posted 1 year ago
Greetings Permies! It's a pleasure!
There's a cherry tree on a 1 acre property with an uncontrolled fruit fly problem. Anyone have some experience with mitigating this?
I did a quick search and discovered that when the larvae are ready, they exit the cherry and drop onto the ground to become flies the following summer. Has anyone experimented with catching the larvae "on the drop" and feeding them to chickens?
