Have fruit flies invaded your home?

Fruit flies are best prevented through vigilant sanitation practices. To exercise proper fruit fly management, remove kitchen trash daily, and keep counter surfaces clean.

  • Clean your vegetables outside of your home.
  • Leave the old bags outdoors and place vegetables in a new container or bag before bringing them into your home. It’s also best to place the vegetables in the refrigerator after cleaning.
  • Use or discard all overripe fruit. Rotting fruit left out in bowls and containers is an invitation to breed fruit flies.
  • Put new soft fruit in a brown bag. This helps it ripen and will keep the fruit flies away.
