Fruit Fly Treatment

Fruit Fly Treatment and Prevention Specialists for Kent and the South East

A family of very small (about 3mm) flies, some with prominent red eyes, characterised by a slow hovering flight in which the abdomen hangs down.

All are associated with rotting fruit and vegetables or fermenting liquids. One species breeds in sour milk, for example, in the residue of forgotten milk bottles.

Remove all “empties”, bottles or cans, and other sources of fermenting product.  Check for rotting fruit, vegetables or pools of spilled liquid. A knockdown insecticide may be used to treat mobile infestations and any breeding locations must be dealt with. Preferably use a trained pest control professional, with experience of stored product pests.
