Where do fruit flies come from?

Small Insect

The tiny fruit flies, or vinegar fly is often found around rotting fruit and vegetables.

If you should forget to pick up a banana peel or an apple core, in a few days you might see tiny, red-eyed flies which seem to have appeared as if from nowhere, hovering over the rotting fruit.

These tiny creatures popularly called “fruit flies” or “vinegar flies,” are almost always less than an eight of an inch in length and are yellowish to black in color.

They fly about looking for rotting fruit and vegetables on which to feed and to lay their eggs.

In just a short time, a number of female fruit flies can lay enough eggs to produce a thousand new fruit flies.

When the larvae, or young fruit fly worms, hatch from the eggs they will feed on the decaying fruit, too.

In a few days the larvae will have changed into adult fruit flies and will fly away, looking for more rotting fruit on which to lay their own tiny eggs. – Dick Rogers
