How to get rid of fruit flies

Did you ever left fruits in your table and next time you come to check on them a whole swarm of tiny flying beasts are all over them? Or you forgot to cover your waste bins and when it is time to dispose of the garbages you are greeted by these fruit flies that seem to scowl at you for disturbing them?

Fruit flies are regarded as pest. They can carry harmful bacteria which in turn can be transferred into your foods or other household items that they come in contact with. They can lay as much as 500 eggs at a time and can complete their life cycle within a week.

Fruit flies are nuisance, you could try to clean, scrub, and disinfect your whole house but they don’t seem to go away. You may have already tried to spray insect repellents on them but their population doesn’t seem to get back to zero. Here I will show you some of the most effective and inexpensive ways to get rid of them.

Locate their breeding grounds or the areas in your houses where they gather. These are usually part of our house that are dark, moist, and where they can readily obtain their food such as leftovers or rotting fruits and vegetables. These places are where you focus your extermination process.You could try to use sprays and organic materials that are being used to kill them.

You could also opt to make a fly trap using a clean, odorless jar.

First, put some chunks of ripe bananas inside (you could also try to use some other sweet-smelling fruits such as jackfruit).
Cover with an aluminum foil or plastic the mouth of your container making sure that there will be no spaces in the sides where the fruit flies could escape in or in other words, seal it tightly and it should be well-fitted.

Next, using a pen or a pencil, poke 4 to 5 holes in the aluminum or plastic making sure that the holes are big enough for the flies to come in but small enough not to let them out.

Finally, place the jar on the places where there are a lot of fruit flies. The smell of the fruit will attract the flies to get inside of the jar and once they get in, they will have the trouble of getting out, that is why it is necessary to ensure that your jar does not have any smell that will overpower that of the fruit you are using.

You could check after a few hours and you will already see a lot of them trapped on the jar. If you have a real serious fruit fly problem, you could let the jar set in for more than 24 hours and after which put dispose its contents after spraying it with insecticides and thoroughly clean the jar and repeat the whole process until you are sure that there are no fruit flies left.

See, there is an answer to your problem on how to get rid of fruit flies. Act now before it gets worse.
