Fruit Fly Control and Extermination Tips
Proper Fruit fly control knowledge is very important if you ever want to live a life without fruit flies. Even though its not a difficult process, you need to know each step. Starting with the elimination of their food sources, you need to treat your drain pipes, find old and rotten food and use a trap to get rid of these pests.
Most people tend to just try and deal with the problem by killing every fruit fly they see without trying to address the root cause. If you are dealing with a fruit fly infestation and fail to address the root cause first, fruit fly removal is going to be extremely hard. Remember that even wet, crumpled clothing and towels can attract fruit flies if left damp for weeks! Regardless of the cause, the good news is that there is a process that can really help you eliminate fruit flies and ensure that that you get rid of them without much expense. After reading this article, check out these other natural fruit fly removal remedies that you can use right now!
Step 1 – Find Their Breeding Grounds
Fruit flies typically gather where there is a high level of bacteria and especially when there is a sugary substance that can be used both for feeding themselves and their young. Fruit flies often start appearing if you fail to clean up properly after meals (such as scraping and rinsing your dishes) or even if you have the habit of leaving wet towels and clothing lying crumpled in the corners of your house for days. Both of these attract bacteria, which in turn attract fruit flies which can make fruit fly control very difficult and can potentially make your fruit fly extermination campaign very long and tiresome. So make sure that you clean up after you enjoy a tasty meal and keep your things dry, especially during the rainy or humid seasons!
Step 2 – Remove the Fruit Flies from Your Home
Kill Them in Drains! – The easiest way to initiate fruit fly control in your kitchen and bathroom areas is to pour regular bleach down your drain pipes.
Clear Your Rubbish – This is important! When you throw away your leftovers, it can often start to rot and that can attract fruit flies. Make sure to keep the rubbish bin away from the house
Remove Old Food – Make sure that you don’t leave food (especially sugar based ones) lying around after eating a meal or taking a snack otherwise fruit flies could find it and share it with their friends!
Step 3 – Using Traps for Easy Fruit Fly Extermination
Building your own homemade fruit fly trap is fairly easy, all it takes is some time and effort. Another great thing is that they are really cheap to make and you can have a couple in your kitchen or wherever your fruit fly problem is within about 30 minutes. I have personally used them and a number of readers have also reported excellent success. Keep in mind that after you have read the article (linked above), you may need to take the plastic right off as I have had feedback that this sometimes encourages them into the jar. Of course, if you don’t have time to make these, you could purchase some for a small fee or hire an exterminator to help you out with any sort of insect removal.
