Please try to post to the proper boards. This doesn't look like a 'site suggestion'. I hope you won't mind me moving it to 'General Discussion' . :)

I have grown a culture of fruit flies before... Use a banana - Place it on a window sill - It may take longer than a month to attract them. If you want any ideas for experiments with the flies just ask... Also post your progress with them here... I would be interested in your results :D
