Composting your food scraps is good for the planet; but fruit flies are bad for your BP! Mike McGrath, host of You Bet Your Garden, reveals an easy way to keep airborne annoyances out of your kitchen waste and worm bin. Plus your fabulous phone calls.
Question of the Week:
“I’ve been using worm bins for several years and currently have a fruit fly issue. I have a glass of red wine sitting next to the stack and use a vacuum cleaner to capture as many as possible. I just listened to several of your old shows and loved hearing about Bt. I use mosquito dunks in my rain barrels outside; can I also use them to kill fruit flies in the worm composters inside?”
