Whether you call them fruit flies, bar flies, drain flies, or any of the other names they have, your guests find them an unappetizing annoyance. The guests rarely take into account the fact that they are studied for tremendous breakthroughs in science and were responsible for the 1995 Nobel Prize. They also fail to realize that the fresh salad and beer they are enjoying for lunch are the reason they are there in the first place. Instead, they want them gone. So after a little research and several personal experiments, within this web site is a program in which an organic product called That Orange Stuff® will eliminate fruit flies for good.
SECTION 1 - Know the Culprit
Drosophila melanogaster is a species of Diptera, or the order of flies, in the family Drosophilidae. The species is known generally as the common fruit fly or vinegar fly. Starting from Charles W. Woodworth, this species is a model organism that is widely used for biological research in studies of genetics, physiology, microbial pathogenesis and life history evolution. It is typically used because it is an animal species that is easy to care for, breeds quickly, and lays many eggs.
First, an understanding of fruit flies is in order. Fruit flies are laid as eggs. When they hatch they become larvae and depending on the temperature will become flies in 5-7 days. This means that the source of your flies went unresolved for almost a week before you became aware of them. They require two things to thrive: food and moisture. They feed and lay their eggs on ripened and over-ripened fruits and vegetables. They can also thrive on residue in drains and beer taps. They don’t require much food meaning that trashcans, recycling bins, empty bottles, and used towels can be breeding grounds as well.
