We collected the compost and froze it in the freezer.
I figured, it’s only three months. It can sit in there. We mostly used plastic ice cream containers. By the end of the three-month period, room for ice cream didn’t exist.
Once we got to the house and set up the make-shift compost, it ate this stuff up. Though our first collection which we didn’t freeze, did not make it and produced many happy fruit flies.
well done..what a clever idea
Freezing before putting into the compost pile does he added bonus of beginning the breakdown process. Fruit flies will always come, invited or no. You can put a dish of apple cider vinegar with a drop of dish soap in it. When attracted to the shallow dish, they will sink upon lighting. He soap reduces the surface tension. Great fly trap!
