Project Description

Fruit Fly

SIZE: 1/8″

COLOR: Dull tan to brownish yellow

DESCRIPTION:

Small fruit flies are attracted primarily to fresh fruits and vegetables. Materials commonly infested include bananas, grapes, peaches, pineapples, tomatoes and fermenting liquids such as beer, cider, vinegar and wine. Adults tend to hover in small circles. Because of their small size, many species are able to penetrate ordinary screens.

CONTROL ADVICE:

The key to Fruit Fly control is proper sanitation and diligence. Always store fruits and vegetables in the fridge or an airtight container. If you throw your scraps away, take the garbage out immediately and keep the bin clean; Fruit flies will breed in the muck that builds up on the bottom. Keep drains and garbage disposal clean.

ACTIVE SEASONS:

Summer & Fall
