Fruit Fly Infestations
Fruit fly infestations normally happen in the spring and summer but can be active throughout the year indoors. Under normal circumstances, fruit flies are brought into the residence on fruit and vegetables purchased at the grocery store. However, they are small enough to fly through the standard window or door screen and can enter the home that way when fruit and vegetables or grown or stored outside. Because the primary food and reproduction sources of fruit flies are fruit and vegetables, the first avenue of preventing an infestation is to clean fruit and vegetables coming into the home and keep them refrigerated.
