  • 1 in every 4 homes in the U.S. per year get infested with fruit flies.

    Fruit flies carry bacteria which contaminate produce causing it to ripen and rot sooner.

    Once infested, fruit flies quickly reproduce on fruit, sponges, drains, or trash containers.

    How often do you get fruit flies?Once or twice a year. I usually have them in my kitch-en during the summer or fall seasons.

    What is your experience with fruit flies?I hate them! Theyre annoying and gross, especially if they land on my produce. Its an unsettling feeling to have a fly harassing you in your kitchen.

    What do you do when you have them?Unfortunately, I just end up throwing out all of my good produce in attempt to get rid of them. If that doesnt work I buy a bug killer trap, however I find it very unsettling to have bug poison next to my food. Not to mention it looks terrible and tacky.

    What words come to mind when you hear the word fruit flies?Gross, Disgusting, nuisance, annoying, rotting,bacteria infested, and down right pesky!

  • When interviewing people who get fruit flies 3 common solutions came up for their problem:

    Solution 1: Solution 2: Solution 3:

    Most people buy fly paper in attempt to kill the fruit flies. In most cases it does not work unless you buy large amounts of fly paper and place it all over your kitchen.

    Another common solution is to take a jar or empty bottle and place a piece of fruit into it. You then take a piece of paper, roll it into a cone and place it into a jar. The fruit flies will crawl, in but will not crawl out. The big problem with this solution is that the fruit flies start to multiply. Once there are enough fruit flies gathered in the jar pushing on the papers edge they start to escape.

    The third, and most common solu-tion is to simply throw all of your fruit away.

  • Open traps Closed traps with deep entrances Closed traps with shallow entrances

    Lure ResearchBefore sketching forms I needed to know what types of traps worked the best, and came up with 3 categories. With closed traps I found that it killed some

    fruit flies, however, some would fly back out. Open traps were a complete fail-ure as the fruit flies would only sit on the edge of the trap and never went low enough to drink or fall in the liquid. Closed traps with straw/ funnel entrances worked best. The fruit flies would smell the liquid, fly in, and get trapped until

    they drank the liquid and died.
