FRUIT FLIES

Fruit Fly Infestation Professionals Serving Philadelphia & Tri-State Area

Fruit flies get their name because they commonly lay eggs on overripe or rotten fruits. Throwing away the infested produce and sanitizing the area will usually do the trick to eliminate these pests within a day or so. However, if you’re still seeing a great number in your kitchen or throughout your home this is a good indicator they have found another source to lay their eggs and you’re dealing with a fruit fly infestation. Drain cleaners, bleach and traps will provide temporary relief, but you will need to hire a professional fruit fly & pest control company to identify the source of the infestation, remove it and apply effective treatment solutions.

Residential & Commercial Fruit Fly Infestation & Control

When a fruit fly infestation gets to the point where you feel disgusted in your own home, commercial pest control products & solutions are necessary. Our technicians are experts at identifying points of infestation you may have missed: clogged drains, cupboards, pantries, garbage and other such areas are the perfect breeding ground for fruit flies.

  • Regularly clean trash cans & recycling cans
