The produce aisle can be a glittering sprawl of edible bounty. Juicy peaches! Ripe bananas! Mouthwatering cantaloupe! Stocking up on your favorite fruits and veggies can leave you in anticipation of delicious snacks to come.
But once you make your selection and head home with your treasures, you may be taking unwanted visitors with you. We’re talking about fruit flies. Those pesky little critters like to hitch a ride on fresh produce. Freeloaders!
If you’ve ever been terrorized by one of them (or a cloud of them?! The horror!), then you know how difficult it can be to get rid of them once they’ve invaded your kitchen. The problem with fruit flies is twofold:
On an aesthetic level, they are an unsightly nuisance. Their presence can mar the perceived cleanliness of your home, despite your commitment to thorough scrub-downs. No one wants to host a dinner party – or attend one, for that matter – when flies are buzzing around your head or even worse, ruining a perfectly pleasurable glass of wine.
But more concerning is that fruit flies are known vectors of E.coli, as confirmed by the National Institutes of Health. In these studies, fruit flies harbored E.coli bacteria for up to 7 days after initial contamination, and were proven to progressively contaminate each piece of produce on which they landed. In case your inner science nerd needs a reminder, some types of E. coli can cause bloody diarrhea, severe anemia, UTIs or other infections. Cue sweaty palms.
Frustratingly, fruit flies reproduce at an alarming speed, making them difficult to banish for good. Each female may lay as many as 500 eggs at a time. Complete development from egg to adult under summer conditions may be completed in 8 to 10 days. Mating takes place soon after adult emergence, usually within a few hours, and egg laying begins about 24 hours later. How did rabbits ever earn their reputation?!
Their need for speed is why there are countless DIY fruit fly traps across the internet. People have been searching for all-natural ways to get rid of these pests since the commercial grade products on the market are full of chemicals including a nerve agent used in World War II. True story. No wonder no one wants to put that in their kitchen or near their food!
