Attack of the fruit flies
I'm not sure how they got in, since I have been freezing everything before adding to the bin, but I have got a serious fruit fly problem. I'm sure part of it is because I overfed (I had some avocados and bananas go past their prime, and I just tossed them in, and I think that may have overloaded everything.)
Wormies are still active and eating, but every time I open the lid, a mass of fruit flies comes swarming out. And if I move the top layer of bedding around to see how far the worms have gotten with the food they've been given, forget it, it's like an Alfred Hitchcock movie.
It got up to the 70's today, so I took the bin outside (it normally lives in my kitchen), took off the lid, and rustled everything around to get the fruit flies out of there, and left it open for about an hour. Other than doing that every couple of days (?) and leaving the bin alone until the worms catch up, is there something else I can do to cut down on the current problem, or do I just need to wait it out?
