I need to control fruit flies in a restaurant, what would be the best product to use?

Answer:

The main goal with fruit flies is to find the breeding site.  In restaurants, fruit flies almost always breed from the syrup and other food and drink that falls behind the bar areas and where the soda machines and soda guns are.  We carry traps to catch the adult flies that are flying around, the best seller being our Natural Catch Plus Fruit Fly Traps.  As far as the source and breeding sites, you should wash all of the areas underneath the bar and soda areas to clean any syrup or other sticky areas and places where food could have failed behind or under machines  It is also a good idea to apply a product like Invade Hot Shot which is a foam that will eat away any organic matter that fruit flies breed in.
