ABOUT Fruit fly Traps:
Fruit flies are attracted by the apple cider vinegar and fly into the map-cones where they are trapped inside the bespoke glass vases. The areas represented in the maps are of Highland Park, Eagle Rock, and Glassell Park, which in the summer months also have a lot of fruit flies.
