Small flies bite fruits with their ovipositor to deposit their eggs. These eggs will hatch in the fruit and the larvae will take the opportunity to feed cheaply for a few days!

How do fruit tree fly attacks occur?

The conditions for the spread of the fruit fly?

She especially likes hot weather.
She will lay her eggs on rather ripe fruit.

The means of controlling the fruit fly?

  • The best remedy is to put pheromone traps.
    This trap contains reconstituted sex hormones which attract males who thus remain stuck and therefore cannot reproduce!
    This therefore decreases the number of females ready to lay on the fruit.
  • A single trap is certainly not enough, you usually need to have 2 or 3 around endangered species.
  • Finally, you can also make your own fly trap by dropping glue on a yellow plate.

Among the species most affected we have: cherry, olive, peach, apple, pear, plum
