Drosophila usually live on moist surfaces and in foods that have been fermented for example ripe fruits, rotten vegetables, garbage disposal spaces, wine residues.
Drosophila are 3,1-5,1mm in size and are yellowish-brown in color. Female drosophila lay about 500 eggs, white in color. Eggs hatch in 24-30 hours.
Adult drosophila can cover a distance of 10Km in 24 hours. Their numbers increase during the summer and autumn. Drosophila pest control is done by residual spraying in difficult areas. The space must be cleaned very well in advance.
