Our remedy for fruit fly control
First, contact us. The key to controlling fruit flies is finding the breeding sites and removing them by cleaning thoroughly. Some breeding sites will be obvious, like ripened fruit, while others, such as food kicked under the stove, may be easily overlooked. The inspection needs to focus on finding all sites where moist organic matter has accumulated and then removing that matter completely. Fruit flies only live a few days, but will breed rapidly if conditions are ideal. Maintaining sanitation and storing food in the refrigerator will greatly reduce populations.
How to Identify a Fruit Fly
Tan brown with red eyes; 1/8″ in size.
Fruit flies are attracted freshly decaying, moist organic matter, like fruits and vegetables. Once indoors, fruit flies can find and exploit other potential breeding sites such as poorly maintained trash containers, recycling bins, mop heads, garbage disposals, etc. They may also be found breeding in dumpsters outside and flying into the building through doorways. Because of their small size, many species are able to penetrate ordinary screens.
Ripened fruit or vegetables, or any other fermenting products.

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!
“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
