Thereof, how do fruit flies come out of nowhere?

It often seems like fruit flies just appear out of nowhere. You see, when a fruit is overripe or starts to go bad it begins to ferment, producing alcohol, which attracts fruit flies. They continue to gobble up the fermenting fruit, and in the process, lay hundreds of eggs that hatch into larvae in mere hours.

Also Know, how long does it take to kill fruit flies?

Anonymous It takes me about two days. I take an empty wine bottle, put a little wine or soda in, roll a piece of paper into a cone and stick the small end into the bottle. The flies fly into the bottle and can't get out.

Do fruit flies turn into maggots?
