How to Prevent fruit flies from entering a compost pail
Using simple materials in most any home, this video provides a novel solution to fruit flies in your compost pail. Composting is a great idea, but if you are not careful, the fruit flies will start to take over and you'll wish you had never started. But this simple idea will keep you composting without the bugs! Starting with a large container from something like a peanut butter jar, you can cut out a large hole and secure a scouring pad to the underside of the lid. Then, place the lid on the jar and you are done! The pad will keep the flies out while allowing odor to escape. You get an odor free, fly-free compost pail to use anytime, indoors or out.
