Fruit Fly

Fruit Flies – a Pest that becomes numerous fast.

Quest employs insecticide spray application to get rid of Fruit Flies.

Fruit flies can detect fermenting or ripe fruit and vegetables from many meters away. And since their size is quite small, they can penetrate little gaps and crack in the structures of our homes and workplaces. Fruit Flies would feed on these fruits and vegetables and also lay eggs on the surfaces of these items. That’s how the problem gets worse really fast.

So you should try not to keep ripened fruits and vegetables out for long before consumption as they could either start the fruit fly problem if these items were laid with fruit fly eggs or if some new fruit flies find these items they may feed on these and then lay eggs on them too.

Fruit flies have a quick life as they can go from egg to adult in just 8 days. That means every egg that was laid out is an adult in 8 days and in turn ready to lay more eggs. Fruit flies can also feed and sustain off of the stuff found inside drainage pipes and similarly moist mops and cleaning cloths.

Fruit Flies Extermination Technique and its Advantages:

We utilize the most effective insecticide Spray and Fog agents available from the leading pesticides manufactures. These pesticide are highly effective and contain most powerful active ingredients. We employ the Spray and Fog technique to Control, and Exterminate the Fruit Flies infestations.

Some of the Characteristics of the Spray and Fog technique are:

  • It is the best option when there is no Bait available for a given Pest. A targeted application of Control Agents in selected areas of the structure is undertaken. In cases of high infestations, spraying upon the pests produces a spectacular knock down.
  • Areas that are targeted are the nesting and foraging activities areas of the Pest.
  • Fruit Flies are affected by the insecticide active agent when they come into contact with the treated surfaces.
  • Fruit Flies would be exterminated by getting the Active Ingredient into it’s biological system via contact. An affected pest may also prove to be a source of secondary poisoning for other members.
  • The Insecticide Spray method results in gradual, almost fool-proof and guaranteed removal of these pests.

Client’s Preparations for Insecticides Application:

  • Client is required to prepare areas to be treated with insecticide spray application.
  • Client is required to leave the property during the application and stay out for further 2 hours after the application.

Our exterminators will inspect the structure for points of vulnerabilities that may facilitate future infestations or conditions that may be helping the Fruit Flies to flourish. It will be up to the property owner to act on the recommendations.

Specific Notes on Spray or Fog Application:

Spray may be Water-Based or of the Emulsion type. Even though it would not stain or damage surfaces, it may be noticeable as a thin film of light color. The film may also have oily characteristics. If it is found on any surfaces that are used by people or pets, then it should be cleaned away at the earliest. For further information, please, see our Pesticides and the MSDS page.

Expected Results and Outcome of the Treatment:

In about 3-5 weeks, all Fruit Flies would have been eliminated having directly or indirectly been exposed to the insecticide sprayed. Gradually Fruit Flies would simply cease to exist. It remains possible that some Fruit Flies may expire near human living spaces.

At Quest Pest Management Inc., we have the highest success rate of complete elimination of Fruit Flies with one treatment alone.

Prior to carrying out treatment for Fruit Flies, we will do an inspection or survey of the property to determine the extent and scope of the infestation. In doing so, we will also obtain information from people present on site.
