Biology

Adult females lay their eggs on average 500 near the surface of fermenting fruits and vegetables or near the cover crack of imperfectly sealed containers. They hatch in about 30 hours. The whole life cycle can take as little as 8 days, the female mates after 2 days of becoming an adult. Their reproductive potential is enormous.

Habits

Fruit flies are attracted to fresh fruits and vegetables because of the fermenting yeast. They are not only attracted to decaying food but also fermenting liquids such as, beer, cider, vinegar and wine. They tend to use the mops and brush heads and other cleaning materials and areas to breed. Adults tend to hover in small circles.

Reasons for Control
