If you notice a flurry of little flies swarming around your fruit and vegetables, it might be a sign of a fruit fly infestation. These flies are attracted to fruit that is rotten or overripe. If you can, remove the flies by rinsing the fruit thoroughly. Or, if you’d prefer to keep the pests at bay, you can spray vinegar on the affected areas.
Fruit flies can enter your home through open doors, broken screens, and other entry points. Once inside, they will reproduce and look for food. To combat this problem, call Orkin. The company can provide emergency pest control services around the clock. They also offer 24-hour customer support.
In addition to fruit flies, gnats are another insect pest that can attack your home. They feed on blood and can bite you. Look for these bugs in your kitchen’s sink, trash can, and pantry. The larvae of these insects will hatch in about a week and will eventually turn into adult flies.
The best way to eliminate fruit flies is to eliminate the source of infestation. First, you should make sure to keep trash cans clean and airtight. You can also try drain cleaners or bacterial digesters to eliminate the slime that attracts these flies.
