CHICAGO (CBS) — More than 60,000 people are in Chicago for the 65th National Restaurant Association show at McCormick Place.
WBBM: All right, so what are we looking at here?
“Dead fruit flies,” says Brian Rascona of Fruit Fly Bar Pro, based in New York. We’re are peering into a container about as big as a 10-gallon aquarium.
No water in it, of course. But there are a lot of fruit flies.
“We’re releasing fruit flies gradually. We let them go and they die. There’s a few stragglers flying around there now.”
As the fruit flies die, the restaurant owners gather round. Apparently fruit flies are a big issue.
