"Three adult fruit flies have been detected on mainland Tasmania in a prime fruit growing area on the state's north-west coast."
They are so common here, we wouldn't bother to count them? That was a weird headline for me to read!
When they show up in my house, it's the old vinegar and soap routine.
@gemlog Tasmania had access to a lot of asian countries for export due to our fruit fly free status. Unfortunately that is no longer the case.
@bcshort Thank you! I had no idea.
ISTR it was filled from a 5l can that had warnings in about 5 different languages and she would use it quite liberally agains the numerous bugs of Kuala Lumpur (there seemed to be thousands).
Although I think whatever went into it is now banned worldwide, she lived until 93..
