Auckland Fly Control Best Tactics for Garden Invading Fruitflies

Home Improvement,Environment,Health
If you have a garden or fruit trees, there are most likely fruit flies lurking in the ground just waiting too emerge in the spring and destroy your vegetables and fruits. You can rid your garden and fruit trees of these pests before they destroy the fruits of your labor with some diligent cleaning and spraying.

For backyard gardeners and professional growers, the pest can be a major cause of stress and economic damage. While some private growers may spray for fruit flies using chemicals that are relatively safe to humans, others rely on different methods to protect crops.

Making sure your yard is clean is another good way to stop fruit flies. While they may prefer standing water or moist organic material, they may also lay eggs on wet rags or even in compost piles.

The most common fruit flies that attack garden vegetables and fruit trees have spotted or striped wings, are brightly colored and are approximately 3/10 of an inch long. Tiny pests that do big damage to vegetables and fruit.

Adult fruit flies suck the juices from the leaves and fruits of garden plants and fruit trees, while the fruit fly larvae feast inside the fruit. The fruit flies favorite meals are tomatoes, pears, plums and cherries, but the fruit flies will attack and devour any other fruit that you are trying to grow.

The best way to rid your garden and fruit trees of fruit flies is to stop them before they get started. That will require a diligent cleaning of your garden plot and the ground under your fruit trees.

Fruit flies spend the winter in cocoons in garden debris and the soil. In late spring, the fruit flies emerge from their cocoons and the female fruit fly makes an opening in the fruit and lays her eggs. The fruit fly eggs hatch into maggots and eat the fruit until they are grown. Then the fruit flies will drop to the ground and build new cocoons in the soil or garden debris and start next year's life cycle of fruit flies.

Once the garden vegetables or fruit have been infected with fruit fly maggots, there's no way to save the vegetables or fruits. You have to rid your garden and fruit trees of fruit flies before they get started.

A thorough cleaning of all debris from the garden soil and under fruit trees is essential in late winter or very early spring, before the fruit flies emerge from their cocoons. The debris that is cleaned up must be disposed of properly or the fruit flies will still find your vegetables and fruits.

After cleaning the debris on the ground, a thorough spraying with insecticide spray of the ground is needed. Not only are the cocoons of the fruit flies in the debris on top of the soil, but they also burrow down into the soil.

Once the ground debris have been cleaned from your garden and from under fruit trees and the initial treatment of insecticide spray applied, continue to use insecticide spray regularly throughout the growing season. Your insecticide spray of choice, whether organic or chemical, will work just fine to keep the fruit flies at bay.
