Fruit flies may appear in your apartment for several reasons:

  • You have rotting fruit, sweets, alcohol or sticky liquids in the kitchen.

  • You bought already infected fruit with fruit fly eggs.

If you have noticed fruit flies in your backyard, they are likely to be fond of your citrus trees. When the fruit flies have a steady food source in the kitchen or garden, they breed actively right there. It only takes 10 days for a new adult generation to appear. That’s why these bugs are often encountered at fruit and vegetable storage where the fruit condition is barely controlled.

Usually it is easy to get rid of fruit flies – you just need to throw out infested fruit, but sometimes it’s needed to get help of special products like fruit flies traps and know some tricks - all this you will find in our Review of the Best Fruit Fly Traps.
