Flies are bothersome pests, whatever type of fly it is. Maybe not as bothersome and potentially dangerous as mosquitoes, but pesky pests nonetheless. They can carry diseases with them that are harmful to humans. Bacteria, fungi, and viruses can be picked up by flies and spread by contaminating food and water. The fruit fly (drosophila melanogaster) is particularly bothersome and annoying. They are attracted to ripened fruits and vegetables, and lay their eggs near the surface of fermenting foods, or other moist organic materials. But they can also breed in garbage bins, drains, empty bottles, and other places. They are easily confused with the house fly (musca domestica) as they invade our houses, especially if there are exposed fruits or vegetables. They also are present in supermarkets, restaurants, and wherever else there is food, and it is allowed to ferment or rot. The best way to avoid problems with fruit flies is to eliminate the sources of attraction. But if they have several breeding grounds, it will be harder to get rid of them. There are some ways that can help get rid of the fly problem.
