Apparently, fruit flies are attracted to the acids given of by fruit as it matures and begins to spoil ratherthan the sugars. So, if you are bothered these Little buggers, pour a little vinegar into a small dish and add a few drops of detergent.

The vinegar draws the flies and the soap breaks surface tension so the flies cannot escape.
