Your PMP may recommend trapping or targeted killing of the adult flies as a supplement as well.
The adult flies have a very short lilfespan. However traps such as the new InVite Fruit Fly Trap can be helpful to eliminate adults quickly, trap flies that come in from outside, or that are brought in with produce. Catching these flies before they find a place to lay eggs can be beneficial. Your PMP may also use small traps called monitors to help pinpoint areas where the flies are breeding.
InVite Lures and Traps contain non-toxic attractants that are designed to lure flies into traps or in some cases to a targeted surface that your PMP has spot treated with a residual pesticide.
Your PMP may use sticky “glueboards” treated with InVite gel attractant. They may spot treat the surfaces of these traps with a pesticide so that the flies will die even if they don’t get caught in the trap.
It is important to not disturb the traps your PMP may place and to follow any instructions. They may give with regard to checking traps, replacing them or refilling them.
