:Here's a totally unessential gadget that's fun to play with. I don't use it for fruit flies because it is easy to just tap them out of their deli cups, but it's useful for sucking small beasties off the windows and house plants for an occasional wild game dinner. It's also handy for taking up just the right amount of pinhead crickets. The rubber tube end has a screen over the stopper hole so you don't inadvertently share the feast while collecting. Between this and an entomology net for field plankton, my frogs were saved from starvation when my first fruit fly cultures failed all at once.

I probably have more time for flitting through the tules waving a butterfly net than you fellows, and don't have any neighbors who can see me and become concerned about my mental health either, but a net is a nice backup in season. The frogs seem to be stimulated by the small wild things and go for leaf hoppers in particular.

I got this gadget over the Internet at an entomology science supply house along with the net, but you could probably make one easily enough.
