We noticed quiet a few comments concerning fruit flies on bananas from a post we made recently on Facebook.

Honestly, I’ve never had a problem with bananas and fruit flies so I wanted to check it out and provide a solution.

With some research I discovered that fruit flies often lay their eggs on the banana skins. Then we buy the bananas and bring them (the eggs) home to a nice warm kitchen – a perfect place to hatch!

Solution: When you bring your bananas home, rinse or wash them and then dry them off using a paper towel.

You can also use a mixture of equal parts water and apple cider vinegar to spray the skin of ripe bananas to deter fruit flies. Once peeled no vinegar will be noticeable.

Buying Tip: Try to buy bananas ready to eat or slightly green as ripe fruit is more susceptible to fruit fly infestation.

Hope that Helps!
