Fruit flies are a common pest, especially in kitchens and other food storage areas. This is due to the fact that their favored source of nutrition is rotten or fermented fruit and vegetables, but they also make homes in drains, garbage disposals, mop buckets, garbage cans, and recycling bins. Even spilled juice under a fridge can be a home for them; all they need is a thin layer of organic material. These small insects can be relatively hard to get rid of once they are inside your house and can lead to the quicker spoilage of any foods they happen to lay their eggs on. All in all, they can find a home pretty much anywhere in a kitchen. The best way to deal with them is through a combination of preventative measures and the fruit fly control products on this page.

Here at Do My Own Pest Control you are sure to find all the fruit fly products you will need to defeat this pest once and for all, as well as free and unlimited advice from our team of professional pest control experts.

How To Get Rid Of Fruit Flies In Two Simple Steps

Getting rid of fruit flies doesn’t have to be difficult, and in fact there are a few easy steps you can follow that will ensure that you kitchen is free of these bugs in no time. These steps for how to kill fruit flies are listed in the order they should be performed to maximize their effectiveness.

1.    Clean Up

This is the most important step because the insects are naturally drawn to overripe, rotting, or spoiled produce. Therefore, merely throwing out such items or storing them in the refrigerator or sealed containers will lead to a drastic decline in the number of fruit flies, even without any further action on your part. Here are some simple steps to take:

  • Eat, discard, or refrigerate any ripe produce. 
  • If there is a cracked or broken area of a fruit (with flies present) cut off and throw away that piece. 
  • Clean up any spills from cooking or eating immediately.
  • Regularly rinse out garbage cans and recycling bins.
  • Rinse any cans or bottles before putting them in your recycling bin.
  • If canning or making your own beer or wine, always use very tight seals.
  • Make sure all screens are free of rips or tears.

Fruit flies are perhaps the pest that is most tied to the original source of its infestation; that is to say, once the food or trash is gone there is often nothing in the house that will entice the fruit flies to stay. Don’t just place the produce in the garbage, but remove it from your home completely so the flies don’t stick around. In addition, taking away the original source of food will starve out any succeeding generations of eggs that may have been laid. 

2.    Use A Fruit Fly Trap Or Spray

There are several different products you can use to get rid of fruit flies. Because they are flying insects, one of the best ways to kill fruit flies in your house is to use a fruit fly trap. Generally speaking, these are glue-based products that have either a pheromone or a sweet smelling attractant. This will cause the fruit flies to land on the surface of the trap, believing that they have found a meal; however, the sticky substance will not allow them to escape once they have landed. Should the traps become full, they can be easily disposed of and replaced until the fruit fly infestation is under control. 

 

Besides fruit fly traps, there are also many different fruit fly sprays that will aid you in killing them. Most of them are based on the same active ingredients, such as pyrethroids, that are used to kill larger pests, so you can rest assured knowing that they will have the power needed to knock down any size fruit fly infestation.
