- Types: Fruit Fly, Drain Fly, Phorid Fly
- Size: 1/16 to 1/8 inch
- Feed On: They are most often attracted by decaying or fermenting organic matter and foods. Fruit flies will most often be found in kitchens, drain flies around drains, and phorid flies around broken sewer lines.
- Concerns: Because of their ability to appear virtually out of nowhere, fruit flies can rapidly infest an area, laying as many as 500 eggs on a fruit they infest. They are, in fact, the cause of a high percentage of the contamination of fruits.
