Fruit Fly Causes

When fruit and vegetables start to spoil, they ferment, creating a distinctive aroma that attracts fruit flies. But while produce is the most common fruit fly attractant, they're also drawn to coffee grounds, alcohol, trash and any place where fermentation takes occurs. While you might not see them out in the open, they can also swarm in drains, waste receptacles and more.

Fruit fly infestations happen fast, because these extremely small insects reproduce at rapid rates. In fact, one female fruit fly can lay hundreds of eggs, and it takes about a single day for those eggs to hatch. And while fruit flies don't live long, their amazing rate of reproduction ensures that once you have a problem, it will only get worse.

The Risks of Fruit Flies

All commercial facilities can host fruit fly infestations. When food is improperly stored or disposed of in an office breakroom, for example, fruit flies can appear around counters, sinks and coffeemakers. While these infestations are undesirable, the threat of fruit flies is far more serious for grocery stores, supermarkets and commercial food producers.

This is because fruit flies carry a number of bacterial diseases and pathogens that are harmful to human beings. Once inside your facility, it can be extremely difficult to keep them away from production areas, where fruits and vegetables are exposed to the open air and small bits of produce can cling to the insides of machines used for processing. Without professional pest control, fruit flies can quickly contaminate food, resulting in serious illnesses and a loss of revenue and reputation for your company.
