Fruit Flies Control

What causes fruit flies?

Fruit flies hate clean surfaces, so keep those countertops as clean as possible. When you spill some fruit juice or other sugary substance, don't wait until your favorite TV show is over to clean it up. Keep those sink drains free of food particles and eradicate all the gross residue in and around the drain. If you don't, those spots become the perfect destination for fruit flies to breed. You do not want that.

Females lay their eggs on the surface or inside fruit that's overripe, rotting, or decaying. Each female fly can lay up to 500 eggs at a time, so it’s important to take action as soon as you spot the first fruit fly. After hatching, the larva feast on their surroundings (like a past-ripe banana) for a few days, before evolving into fully formed adults. Overall, their life cycle is pretty quick—fruit flies are capable of mating just two days after they reach the adult stage—which means your cleanup clock starts ASAP.
