Appearance of Fruit Flies
✔️ Fruits and vegetables that are in the process of decomposition
✔️ Leftover food that is exposed for a long time
✔️ Dirt accumulated in hard to reach places and even potted plants
✔️ Attracted by the sweet odor of fruits and vegetables, therefore, it is essential to always keep these foods well stored and in closed places
✔️ Keep the kitchen and other areas where food is stored always clean and free of food waste
✔️ Food should be stored in closed containers and the fridge is a great place to store fresh fruits and vegetables
If fruit flies are already present at home , the solution is to place traps in strategic places , such as near fruit bowls and trash cans. It is essential to act immediately to avoid reproduction as each female can lay up to 500 eggs at once. These eggs hatch into larvae that feed on the pulp of fruits and vegetables, which can lead to an infestation in no time.
