In some areas of the country, and for businesses such as restaurants and food-handling companies, there are few pests more of a nuisance than fruit flies.
To stop them from making your business a haven for them, steps need to be taken that go to the very source of the issue.
“More and more, we’re finding that the dark-eyed fruit fly, and not the red-eyed fruit fly, is taking prevalence in restaurants. This is an important distinction for commercial kitchen managers because it may help with elimination and prevention strategies,” Black explains.
“Where red-eyed fruit flies prefer to breed in decaying produce and fruits, dark-eyed fruit flies will more often exploit the decaying organic matter that can build up inside drains, specifically in drains that serve soda and beer lines.”
