Have you ever found your kitchen festering with fruit flies that seemed to appear out of nowhere? Contrary to the popular belief, this is not a matter of spontaneous generation. Fruit flies can quickly multiply in number, and be hard to get rid of once they’re around. So, where did these fruit flies come from?
Fruit flies are designed to find fermenting fruit. They can detect the smell of ripe fruits and vegetables from a good distance away, despite their tiny size. Beware of bowls of fruit or exposed vegetables in your kitchen, as there are probably a few fruit flies conjuring up a way to get into your home to get at them. This isn’t looking food for your home – since fruit flies are so small, they can easily enter your home through door cracks, windows and screens. They can even get inside your home on fruits or vegetables picked up from the market.
DID YOU KNOW? Fruit flies are notorious for their fast life cycles. They can go from an egg to an adult in under 8 days. Don’t let fruit flies take over your home. Call Aerex Pest Control Services to remove them. Our professional pest technicians can get your fruit flies under control.
