How do you guys control fruit flies during feeding? Just recently I decided I would put a small hole in the side and shake the flies out then cover with my thumb in between enclosures. But the little buggers climb like crazy.

I just shake them out. But they are hard to control. I drilled a small hole in a bottle cap and placed it on top of the container and just flip it upside down to get one FF at a time.

I would never willingly allow fruit flies into the house and tanks!
They seem to do it anyway. I hate them with a passion.

Dont come crying to me when they start breeding and you are totally over run by them!

Sounds more like fungus gnats than fruitflies, if they're breeding in the frog tank. Do you have any live plants in there?

Gnats don't bite, but they look very similar.
