Having a fly infestation in a home can really take its toll on any homeowner. It’s easy to spot a fruit and drain fruit fly infestation in a kitchen since mature adults will be visible. Because drain flies aren’t great flyers, you can find them resting on walls and ceilings. Treat drain flies at their preferred breeding site, drains and pipes. For fruit flies, remove any old or decaying fruits, vegetables, alcohol, and meat before you begin treatment.
Regularly treat these fruit and drain fly breeding sites with Gentrol® IGR Concentrate or Gentrol® Aerosol. Prevent these insects from entering into the home by refilling drain traps and properly sealing plumbing fixtures. The Gentrol® product line delivers responsible solutions in food handling areas and uses IGR technology to prevent future reinfestation and callbacks for drain and fruit flies. After treating a kitchen for flies, finish the job by leaving behind fly traps such as the insecticide-free Musca-Stik™ Sticky Fly Trap or the Starbar EZ Trap®.
