Why Fruit Flies Love Port St. Lucie

June 20, 2018


Fruit flies love Port St. Lucie homes and businesses because of the abundance of sweet, tasty fruits and beautiful, tropical-like climates in South Florida. While fruit flies aren’t necessarily dangerous, they are a nuisance pest that can multiply quickly. If you notice a single fruit fly buzzing around your home, you are likely to find many more in a day or so.  This might not seem like such a big deal, but it can be if the fruit flies have eaten or laid eggs in your fresh fruit bowls. If you are a business owner, especially a restaurant or grocer, and customers see fruit flies, they are likely to equate that with an unclean environment or rotted food and may avoid your establishment.

Fruit flies love Port St. Lucie homes and businesses because of the abundance of sweet, tasty fruits and beautiful, tropical-like climates in South Florida. While fruit flies aren’t necessarily dangerous, they are a nuisance pest that can multiply quickly. If you notice a single fruit fly buzzing around your home, you are likely to find many more in a day or so.  This might not seem like such a big deal, but it can be if the fruit flies have eaten or laid eggs in your fresh fruit bowls. If you are a business owner, especially a restaurant or grocer, and customers see fruit flies, they are likely to equate that with an unclean environment or rotted food and may avoid your establishment.

As a home or business owner, there are several things you can do to prevent fruit flies from becoming a nuisance:

  • Keep your home or business clean, and free of sticky messes; wipe up spills quickly
  • Store fruits and bread in sealed containers or the refrigerator, if possible
  • If you must leave fruit out in the open or in a fruit bowl, make sure it’s not overly ripe
  • Take trash out frequently and keep trash bins covered tightly so the rotting garbage doesn’t attract fruit flies
  • Be sure to fix holes in screens in windows and doors to prevent fruit flies from getting inside your home or business

By reducing the things around your home or business that attract fruit flies and removing the breeding grounds (like overripe fruit) indoors, you can greatly reduce the chances of a fruit fly infestation.
