Fruit Flies

We receive many calls from homeowners during the winter who become frustrated with small flies. Most often these flies are fungus gnats or fruit flies. These flies lay hundreds of eggs at a time and can become an “infestation” overnight. Fungus gnats (left) are usually coming from over-watered plants or a slow leaking pipe allowing fungus to grow may be to blame. Fruit flies (right) are introduced by fruit or vegetables. Let plants dry between watering, fix leaks quickly and remove infested fruits & vegetables to cure these infestations. For more information call 1-800-649-9992.
