Can Fruit Flies Bite?

Yes, but not as sharp or strong as other insects that does!
Fruit flies may seem harmless until you see them in your kitchen crawling on the countertop. The best way to stop fruit flies is to follow these steps:

  • Clean all surfaces often with soap and water, cleaning under appliances and other places where food could be stored or spilled. Don’t let dirty dishes pile up. Store food in airtight containers.
  • Keep indoor lights off during daylight hours, which attract these pests— especially near windows, if screens are old wash them for better ventilation—- turn outside lights off at dusk.
  • Check periodically for spider webs behind carpets and furniture because fruit flies can lay eggs there and hatch larvae.
