FRUIT FLY
TIP FROM JOHN OF TOWNSVILLE

John places a drop of household detergent into a YELLOW bowl of water.  John has tried a range of different coloured bowls but has found that yellow works best.  John had some old yellow plastic bowls around the place but you could possibly cut out & use the base out of an old yellow bucket if you have one.  John then attached his bowl to his citrus trees & had excellent results.
