House flies lay their eggs in decaying organic matter like trash and animal feces; fruit flies lay their eggs in fruit and drain flies lay their eggs in drains.

Flies hate the smell of essential oils like lemon grass, peppermint, lavender and eucalyptus. They also dislike the smell of camphor, cinnamon, and cloves.

Bacteria and germs can stick to fruit fly bodies that may subsequently get on your food and cause health problems like diarrhea or other gastro-intestinal diseases.

Fruit flies may come in through your food products and because of their rapid reproduction rate, can infest the area quickly.

Flies can enter homes via food products (fruit flies) or drift in through open windows and doors. They may also be attracted to and develop in decaying organic matter in drains.

Fun fact: flies inhabit every part of the world except the polar ice caps. With that amount of prevalence, it’s important to know what to do if you ever experience a fly infestation outside or inside your home or business. From garbage flies to horse flies, understanding the fly lifespan, what flies eat and what they’re attracted to are all facts necessary to identify the species you’re dealing with.

Fruit flies can lay 100s of eggs within their short life. Within 24-30 hours, the eggs hatch into maggots, feasting on the fruit they were born in.

 

Risks of flies

The last thing you want to see is a bunch of winged nuisances turning your garbage can into their condo.

Fruit flies can swarm fruit that's decomposing, open soda and alcohol containers — anything that's sugary, sweet, and available.

Drain flies gather, mate, and lay eggs in moisture or standing water. Your drains could become their breeding ground if left unchecked.
