I consider the fruit fly both truly annoying and the most common bug that gets into our houses. I love eating fruit, but having those pesky little bugs flying around makes it less the enjoyable. TERRO has come up with a solution to our problems. I already use their products for keeping ants house, so I happily agreed to test out the Terro Fruit Fly Trap.
Eliminate Fruit Flies with TERROFruitFly Trap
Fast Acting FruitFly Trap is Non-toxic, Ready-to-Use
Fruit flies are commonly spotted swarming around kitchen fruit bowls and near garbage storage areas. Now, TERRO® (http://www.terro.com), an industry leader in pest control products for homeowners, is making it easy to get rid of these irritating pests with a highly effective new product. New TERROFruitFlyTraps not only get rid of fruitflies, they are environmentally safe and the apple-shaped trap looks right at home in any kitchen.
“TERROFruitFlyTraps are designed to lure adult fruit flies, using a special non-toxic food-based liquid lure,” says Stew Clark,technical director for TERRO pest control products. “Flies that enter the trap can't escape to continue breeding.”
Fruitfly populations tend to be greatest in late summer and early fall as they infest fruits during the harvest season. According to Clark, “The key to successful elimination of fruit flies is to locate their breeding source and place the TERROFruitFly trap nearby. Look for fruitfly sources in areas where unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables are stored, near garbage cans and recycling bins.”
All stages of a fruitfly infestation depend on moist organic debris to complete thefruitfly life cycle. The non-toxic acetic acid found in the TERROFruitFly Trap lures the flies to the traps and eliminates the infestation. “Within a few days of placing the trap near a breeding source, you will see a significant decrease in the number of fruit flies,” says Clark. “And homeowners will also appreciate the ease-of-use and attractiveness of the trap itself.”
The traps retail for about $7.99 and can be purchased on line at www.terro.com. Or contact Terro at 1-800-837-7644 for the location of a store near you.
