Eliminate Fruit Flies in Restaurants & Bars with TERRO Fruit Fly Trap

Fruit flies, bar flies, drain flies –call them what you may - are a familiar problem for most restaurateurs and bartenders. These tiny pests are commonly spotted swarming around places such as beer taps, open bottles of liquor, residue in drains and fresh produce. Now, TERRO (http://www.terro.com), an industry leader in DIY pest control products, is making it easy to get rid of these irritating pests with a highly effective product. The company’s new Fruit Fly Trap not only gets rid of fruit flies, they are also environmentally safe and the apple-shaped trap looks right at home in any restaurant or bar.

“Fruit flies are among the most common, and unwelcome guests at any restaurant or bar. They thrive on food and moisture, so even the cleanest establishments can provide prime breeding grounds,” says Stew Clark, TERRO’s director of research and development. “TERRO Fruit Fly Traps are designed to lure adult fruit flies, using a special non-toxic food-based liquid lure. Flies that enter the trap can't escape to continue breeding.”

All stages of a fruit fly infestation depend on moist organic debris to complete the fruit fly life cycle. According to Clark, “The key to successful elimination of fruit flies is to locate their breeding source and place the TERRO Fruit Fly trap nearby. Look for fruit fly sources in areas where unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables are stored, near drains, garbage cans and beer taps.”

The non-toxic acetic acid found in the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap lures the flies to the traps and eliminates the infestation. “Within a few days of placing the trap near a breeding source, you will see a significant decrease in the number of fruit flies,” says Clark. “And users will also appreciate the ease-of-use and attractiveness of the trap itself.”

The traps retail for about $7.99 and can be purchased on line at www.terro.com. Or contact Terro at 1-800-837-7644 for the location of a store near you.
