Fish them out of the vodka and stick them up with pins outside your brew area as a warning to the rest.

I use a half pint mason jar with four nail holes punched in the lid. Fill half way with apple cider vinegar and set them around areas the fruit flies are frequenting. You'll be amazed how many you catch.

From one batch of alcoholic lemonade half the bottles are clear and the rest either have a slimy substance within or what appear to be eggs clinging to the walls of the bottles. When I open these ones a sample neither smells or tastes bad yet it looks like Armageddon in my bottle. Help!
