Fruit fly control

Flies (Brachycera) belong to the order of the bipeds. About 120 families with all kinds of flies belong to this order. The housefly is perhaps best known and almost everything about a fly is very unsanitary, even the way they reproduce. We will remove the fruit fly.


Everyone sometimes suffers from fruit flies that are attracted to (very) sweet products and do not want to leave just because we ask them nicely. In addition, they seem to float in the air, so you cannot handle them properly with a fly swatter.

We have created a summarized article for you. See below for all information about this pest!

    The fruit fly issue

    Flies pose a health risk to you and everyone around you. In addition, the hum of this flying insect is very annoying and it can also easily spread all kinds of diseases.


    Salmonella, cholera, parasitic worms and tuberculosis are examples of diseases that can be spread by flies. There are species that bite humans and animals and that is why it is sometimes better for your (pets) animals to have the nuisance tackled professionally.


    A fly infestation can develop in no time, because it only takes a few days for the fly egg to grow into a fully grown specimen. In addition, females lay between 400-600 eggs throughout their life.

    The fruit fly: a sweet tooth

    Fruit flies feed themselves with fermenting fruit and also go by the name banana flies. Alcohol also has a certain attraction to this type of fly, because of the sugar in liquor. Also, they often fly around bothering people. Fruit flies are very small, often only 3 mm in length and are yellow-brown or spotted with small red eyes. This fly develops very quickly: namely within 11 days. However contrary to popular belief, this species lives much longer than one day and even up to 9 weeks. Fruit flies like to look for as much organically decaying material as possible, such as the organic waste container.

    How do flies get into spaces

    Fly infestations are often in the attic, as this is a place where they can develop quietly and is sometimes easily accessible through cracks and holes or through the roof tiles. Here flies can hibernate in peace, especially when there is a dead mouse or rat that they can feed on. Furthermore, flies can of course easily enter through windows or doors, unless you have taken good precautions, such as by installing insect screens.

    Do it yourself or outsource it?

    There are many do-it-yourself products that can go a long way. Installing insect screens is also a good idea. If you cannot resolve it, because the swarms are too large or the problem occurs in your stable or poultry house, we advise you to contact us. We can help you with long-term and effective control.


    Protect Pest Control is competent and masters all techniques optimally, so that when controlling them, they can also take into account the lifestyle of each type of fly, as well as your personal situation. We always provide a fast, professional and sustainable solution to your fly problem.

    Repel and prevent fruit flies

    Fruit flies are controlled by us by performing a seams and crevices treatment. This means that as many seams and cracks as possible are injected with a liquid, namely a suitable pesticide. There is also the option of nebulizing or treating resting places. The pesticide used has a residual effect of more than 5 weeks, causing flies that come into contact with the liquid later on. With regard to prevention measures, we can always provide you with effective tailor-made advice.

    Trust Protect Pest Control

    Protect Pest Control can combat the fly plague in a very reliable way and help you with prevention now and for the future. Leaving a fly infestation untreated is strongly discouraged, because the fly infestation can easily get out of control and the risks of transmitting diseases or bites can then no longer be prevented.
