7 Best Ways Get Rid of Fruit Flies in Your House

1Cover up your fruit (or wash it as soon as you bring it home).

Fruit flies need moisture like fermenting or decaying food to live off it or lay eggs on it. So, store your fruits in a bag or cover them with fruit cloth or bowls. Washing and carefully fry out the fruits that you keep out like bananas or apples will also keep the flies away as there is no moisture to absorb or infest the fruit through.
