30 Bananas a Day!

One of my staples in my 100% 80-10-10 diet is Papaya. I can 
get them sometimes at 88 cents/lb. I am known to buy a dozen 
at a time. (The huge ones - some weighing 10-15 lbs).

Anyway, some of them get moldy as they ripen, which I don't 
mind as I wash and peel the areas carefully that got that 
way. My issue is that the moldy/raw areas of the fruit are 
attracting fruit bugs and I now have an infestation of them 
in my home.

I looked online for ANY idea on maybe a bag that I can put 
around them when they are ripening (I found one for 
prolonging the life of bananas!) but found none for helping 
to guard my papayas.

Please, ANY tips, tricks, hints, products, ideas, appreciated 

Love and light from Vegas,

Andrew's idea for fruit flies works for me: http://www.raw-food-health.net/EliminateFruitFlies.html

And these bags (or similar) help too: http://www.amazon.com/Debbie-Meyer-Green-Bags-Pack/dp/B0011TMP3Y
