Fruit flies reproduce quickly and abundantly, and may be present throughout the year. They are commonly found in the kitchen and in the pantries where overripe or rotten fruits and vegetables are stored.
However, fruit flies can also be found in other areas of the house where garbage is stored and decomposing organic matter can be found, such as recycling bins, trash cans or trash bins.
Fruit flies often infest homes with fruits and ripe, rotten or decaying products. They also enjoy fermented items such as beer, liquor and wine. Fruit flies can also reproduce and develop in drains, garbage disposal, trash cans and mop buckets. Once they begin to reproduce indoors, the females can lay around 500 eggs and the eggs hatch in just 24-30 hours after being laid by the female. This makes pests difficult to control.

The two most visible signs of fruit fly activity would be adult flies and pupae.
Adult flies are often seen flying in kitchens or trash cans near decaying fruits or vegetables. They are also attracted to liquor / beer bottles.
Mature larvae of fruit flies crawl out of the breeding material to pupate in a nearby dry place. Sometimes they are confused with cockroach or rodent droppings, but they can be easily distinguished by a pair of horns at one end of the pupae.
Once in your kitchen, fruit flies will find a ready food supply. They are going to look for food to try to settle.
Fruit flies love garbage disposal, trash cans and fruit bowls. But they will be attracted to ketchup, TV screens, computer monitors, showers, bathtubs and even pets.
Washing the products will help to eliminate the eggs and pupae from the fruit fly, but it is difficult to eliminate 100% of the problem. And once they hatch, fruit flies hover over the sink, trash cans or fruit bowls in search of something sweet to eat and lay eggs on.
The first step in helping to eliminate house fruit flies should be to eliminate and eliminate any fruit or other material in which the flies reproduce. Eliminate the source of reproduction or fruit flies will persist indefinitely.
Then, you should clean the areas where the fruit flies reproduce. Common areas include the kitchen, places where garbage is stored and the pantry. It is recommended to clean the area with products containing chlorine.
