      To a fruit fly a worm farm is heaven on earth. It’s a smorgasbord of tasty food scraps and a safe place for them to lay their eggs. Therefore its important to take preventative measures to deter them from invading your worms farm. There are a number of ways to resolve the problem of fruit flies in worm bin. Persistence with fruit fly traps—little dishes of vinegar or red wine set out in the kitchen and near my worm bin—ended the first conflict. The problem returned a few years later, but that time, it started in the Spring—so I just decided to do a worm bin Spring cleaning.

    They won’t fly out. - Caution: While the vinegar trap will catch lots of flies, they reproduce so fast that you probably won’t get rid of all of them. - If the swarm reaches 10 Plagues of Egypt status, call an exterminator or pest control professional. - Fruit flies aren’t very resilient. Keeping fruit flies out of your home is an ongoing process, not a one-time treatment. Orkin’s exclusive A.I.M. solution is a continuing cycle of three critical steps—Assess, Implement and Monitor. The Orkin Man™ can provide the right solution to keep fruit flies in their place out .
