I live in GA again and never get them... but if you tend to, a good way to get rid of them is to leave a small amount of red wine in a glass. they will be attracted to it, but when they go in, they will get trapped in the wine. They cant break the surface tension to get back out

Because I rarely have a problem that necessitates a blow off. *shrug* Maybe it also helps that I use a 6.5 gallon carboy for primary. I commonly get a kruesen ring in the neck of the carboy but hardly ever have a problem in the airlock.

So I guess the answer is: people use airlocks because it works for them. Why fix what ain't broke?
