Fruit Fly

About The Pest

Fruit flies are commonly found in or around kitchens and trash reciprocals in residential homes. Restaurants and other food service facilities often encounter fruit fly problems due to the flies being attracted to liquor, beer and fruit juice bottles. When living indoors, a fruit fly will remain active year round. They eat and are attracted to ripe/fermenting produce like fruits and vegetables. The average life cycle of a fruit fly is around 25 days long.


Fruit Flies are busiest toward the end of Fall, especially September and November.
