I have some drosophila loose in the house.

I have some minneola peels on a plate from breakfast, waiting to be taken out to the compost bin.

I have a small cutting block next to the peels on the counter, with chocolate dust on it from cutting a piece off a block of it last night in a fit of chocolate craving.

The fruitflies are checking out the chocolate and seeming to find it attractive.

Is it my imagination or are they even more hyper than usual for a fruitfly?

I say catch the fruit flies, roll them in melted chocolate, nuts, etc.... and eat, extra protein, and no more fruit flies. :)

Ah, that good old Yankee ingenuity!

I think I can combine steps 1 and 2 if I leave out a pan of slightly-melted, tacky chocolate, ya think?
