Fruit Flie Control

Fruit flies have a way of getting to your home. They are a pest species that are attracted to ripening fruits. Even before you enjoy your fruits, they are already on them. And the worst thing is that they can take over in your kitchen. Whenever you bring something from the market or garden, this can lead to an infestation.

Flies also breed in drains, garbage and un-emptied mop bucket. As long as there is a moist organic material or standing water, this makes it a perfect breeding ground. Dial (650) 309-1841 to get free estimates today.



The Life Cycle of a Fruit Fly

A female fruit fly can deposit about 500 eggs on ripening fruits, and other decaying material. The larvae of the fruit fly tend to emerge within 30 hours of egg-laying and will feed for four days before pupating. Adults can come out of pupae ready to lay eggs. With the fast life cycle of a fruit fly, the insect can become a big problem indoors and outdoors especially during the summer months.

Control and Prevention of Fruit Flies

The best way to prevent a fruit fly problem is through prevention. The best flies control method is to get rid of their source of food. If there are ripened fruits in your home, these should be refrigerated and ripened. Anything rotten should be discarded. Other tips you can use to prevent fruit flies include:

  • Have tight-fitting 16” mesh in your windows and doors to prevent adult flies from getting into the home.Once you realize that the insects have infested your home, find the potential sources of foods and get rid of them. If you suspect they are in a drain or garbage disposal bag, put tape over the plastic bag overnight and see if you can catch them. Where fruit flies are breeding, be sure to clean the drain thoroughly using an enzymatic cleaner. This will help to prevent the buildup of the organic material.
  • You can choose to treat the drains using an organic material such as Neem oil. This will help to prevent eggs from hatching and the larvae from pupating.
  • Suck up the adult flies using a vacuum hose. This can be done indoors or outdoors in areas with high populations of fruit flies.
  • If there are any remaining fruit, flies, use a fruit fly trap to get rid of them. Keep this in areas with high activity.

How to Keep Pigeons Out of a Wall

Pigeons are actually harmless birds, but pigeon activities in and around your home may cause significant damage to your property. These birds are called winged rats for a reason, they really can be a nuisance. Pigeons can infest your home with disease-carrying mites or ticks, and their pathogen-laden droppings are yet another problem. Pigeons should be nowhere near your home, let alone in your walls. Here is a great source at to learn more about bird removal.

But if you’ve got a pigeon problem, here’s how you can deal with it. 

The easiest way to keep pigeons out of your wall is to find the entry point, install an exclusion device, and let them fly out themselves. But to keep them away for good, you have to keep them away from your property. 

Pigeons won’t get the chance to enter your walls if they are not already roosting on your roof or chimney. If you can successfully keep these birds away from your property, then you will never have to worry about having them inside your walls. Pigeons are persistent and no matter how many times you chase them away, they will always return, except you take some extra steps to ensure that you make your home uncomfortable or inaccessible to them. 

To permanently keep pigeons away from your property—walls, attic, roof—you will have to make certain changes like installing pigeon spikes or netting that deter birds or putting up physical deterrents that repel pigeons like fake owls. Inspect your building and seal holes: check the roof, attic, and chimney for holes and seal them off. Since pigeons live in the sky, they will access your building from the upper sections. They will often perch on the roof or chimney and can get inside through any cracks they find. You can keep pigeons out by properly and completely sealing every crack, also cap your chimney to prevent pigeons from building their nest in it. If you make your home undesirable to pigeons, they will be forced to stay away, and you will eventually have some peace. 

Some pigeon deterrents to consider

Pigeons may not be scared of humans, but they have natural predators that they find very scary. You can use this knowledge to your advantage and install ceramic owls or hawks to scare them away. But this technique alone will not do the trick because, after a while, the birds will realize that the owl is fake and will continue coming to your roof. You can also try reflective objects like foils or mirrors, this works because birds have a hard time seeing properly when they are close to shiny and reflective objects. 

Another option to explore is water hoses, you can drive pigeons away by spraying them with water, but this method is very temporary as the birds will return once they notice that the water is gone. 

Remove attractants

One of the most effective methods for keeping a pigeon away is to make him less interested in being there in the first place. Remove any standing water that could be used for drinking and bathing. You'll also want to be certain that all trash is contained and out of reach to avoid any free meals.

Bird feeders will always be a problem, despite the fact that you can buy designs with narrow openings that only allow songbirds to enter. If you have bird feeders, consider removing them, especially if you notice that they are attracting the wrong birds and creating a problem for you. 

Another thing that may attract pigeons to your property is a vegetable garden. It’s impossible to hide a vegetable garden if you have one. But you can make your fresh tomatoes and cherries out of reach to birds by investing in a fruit cage. Use a mesh wire fruit cage to protect your veggies and keep nuisance birds away.
