How many are there? Only a few? Flying around or are they in the substrate? If you only notice a few..kill them suckas. The battle never ends..

H202 wont help..there isn't really a way to rid yourself of them..just keep fighting!

Get some fly paper and hang it up inside your terrarium. If worse comes to worse (I.E. They're laying eggs in your project), and it's worth it to make it better, you can order beneficial nematodes who eat eggs/larvae and such.

Pour bleach into all of your drains. Don't keep empty beer/soda cans around. If you have fresh fruit or cut flowers exposed at room temperature, get rid of them. Wet mops or dish towels should be treated with bleach.

Fruit flies want yeast, or fungus, or alcohol. Like mice or roaches, they will stay if you keep feeding them. You might have to stop growing shroomies for a while to route the dirty buggers. :whoa:

Don't panic!
