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.

When I came home the flies were gone
“Rose had been doing some rat work at my place in Lincoln Park. When I woke up the other day there were easily 500 flies in my kitchen. I called and Scott was out later in the morning. He explained to me what was going on and said he would take care of the problem. When I came home from work, the flies were gone. Thank you Scott and thank you Rose for your quick response to my problem.”
