Why Do I Still Have Fruit Flies in My Home?

It's still a little chilly outside. So it can be a bit of a mystery if you're seeing fruit flies zipping around inside your Spring Hill home. You know those flies didn't come in from the outside. But fruit flies don't only come in this way. They can be brought into your home on fruit purchased from the grocery store. That means a fruit fly infestation can happen during any time of the year, no matter how cold it is outside.

If a fruit fly infestation takes root in your Spring Hill home, it can be very frustrating. Those tiny little flies can breed in many places. And they breed quickly. One of the keys to solving a fruit fly infestation is addressing breeding sites:

  • Remove your kitchen trash regularly.
  • Clean your kitchen trash receptacle.
  • Put produce inside your refrigerator or in closed containers.
  • Routinely clean your kitchen towels to remove any remnants of food.
  • Put dirty dishes in a sink of soapy water until you're ready to wash them.

If your fruit fly infestation persists and you're not able to unravel the mystery of where they're breeding inside your Spring Hill home, it might be time to call a pest detective.
