Fruit Flies lay an average of around 500 eggs near services of fermenting fruits and vegetables or near cracks of unsealed containers of fruits and vegetables. They feed on fermenting products, garbage containers, empty bottles and cans, and slime in drains or garbage disposals, fresh fruits and vegetables even on beer, cider, vinegar and wine. Sometimes they will even be attracted to sour mops or broom heads, dish water or mop water that has food particles in them.
Prevention: Elimination of fermenting materials, reducing screen mesh size, and proper sanitation will help with control of Fruit Flies. Contact us for a free inspection.
