Try to eliminate what is attracting them if you can. Keep fruit in a sealed container or refrigerated. Don’t leave fruit cores or peels in unsealed garbage cans. Clean up any spills of juice, wine, or beer. Maggie’s Farm Fruit Fly Trap is an innovative, easy-to-use, patent-pending trap that will discreetly lure and capture fruit flies fast. It uses a non-toxic, dual lure-tablet-and-liquid attraction system. Simply squeeze the liquid into the trap, then add a tablet, and it’s ready to trap some fruit flies! There is also a glue surface inside the trap that provides another way to capture the flies in addition to their drowning in the liquid. Place the trap(s) in areas close to where the fruit fly problem is located. Our traps work for up to 30 days! You should only use one trap at a time in the typical kitchen, as traps should be placed 8-10 feet apart.
If you want to use a direct killing spray, use Maggie’s Farm Flying Insect Killer aerosol. Its plant oil-based formula is designed for fast knockdown and control of flying insects, including fruit flies. Just follow the label directions. If you think you have fruit flies or drain flies in your drains, you can spray the drains with Maggie’s Farm Flying Insect Killer aerosol. To help break up scum build-up in garbage disposals, run ice through it. A product called InVade Bio Drain, available online, is good for digesting the build-up that occurs in drains and garbage disposals.
