Natural Solutions has endless information on different bugs to educate readers so they can prevent infestations. We wanted to provide knowledge for you on the common fruit fly. Fruit Flies can be a problem year long, but mostly in the late summer and early fall as fruits and vegetables are ripening and fermenting more readily. Fruit flies are attracted to very ripe bananas, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, melon, grapes and other perishable items.
Be careful with Fruit Flies as they lay their eggs near the surface of fermenting foods or other moist, organic materials..and the reproductive potential of fruit flies is enormous (it can lay 500 eggs in one week). Once your home is infested with fruit flies, all potential breeding areas must be located and eliminated! Hopefully with this ample information, you can be better aware of the fruit flies in your home and how to eradicate them!
