Fruit flies: an exchange

Dear Doc Lang,
The New York Times reports scientific findings
that male fruit
flies who are sexually inept
turn to alcohol more than the ones
who are
successful seducers. So I want to know how do
I get rid
of these drunk losers? They're always
sneaking into my place and
acting up, getting
in my face. Is there any wine they don't like?


Dear Bothered,

Alcoholics drink anything (even Yellowtail).
What you should do
is, before going to bed,
leave some wine (or even apple cider
in a glass placed by a light. They'll dive in,
but fruit
flies can't swim. Next morning you'll
find them floating dead in
the glass.
Doc Lang
