Fruit Flies Facts


They can be found around areas where decaying or overripe fruits or vegetables are found. They are attracted by bananas, tomatoes, onions and other produce. They are also attracted to other foods that are left unrefrigerated and to food containers that have not been rinsed where there may be residue traces or strong residue aromas.

Fruit flies do not bite. There have been reports of fruit flies irritating the skin, causing a rash or a cluster of red bumps, but they do not attack humans. However, they are extremely annoying and can be harmful.

HUMANS AND FRUIT FLIES ARE GENETICALLY SIMILAR, 75 percent of the genes that cause diseases in humans are also found in the fruit fly.

A female fruit fly lays 30 to 50 eggs per day throughout her lifetime at room temperature. When it’s cold, she may produce far fewer eggs.

The best way to avoid problems with fruit flies is to eliminate sources of attraction. Produce which has ripened should be eaten, discarded or refrigerated. Cracked or damaged portions of fruits and vegetables should be cut away and discarded in the event that eggs or larvae are present in the wounded area.
