Fruit flies are a nuisance for anyone who comes across them. Fruit flies are tiny insects that have an affinity for fermenting or rotting fruit or produce and so you’ll often see them around your fruit trees all year round but especially from summer to autumn. Fruit flies do not bite but they are annoying to have around and could potentially spread germs. They certainly have ruined many a barbecue! They love to hang anywhere around rubbish bins outside and indoors, fruit bowls in the kitchen, or anywhere else where rotting food is exposed.
