Get ready for fruit fly..organically.

Spring has seemingly come early and plants are being bothered by aphids, caterpillars and I suspect once flowering starts there will be many fruit flies about.
There are various methods of controlling them.I would be most tempted to use fruit fly exclusion bags, as sold at green harvest. Here is the link to some great organic pest and disease control, including the Mediterranean fruit fly.

I used to have a problem with aphids, but have been able to get rid of them by adding ladybugs to my flower garden. The ladybugs are a great organic pest control for aphids because they eat them, so it's complete natural and chemical free.
