3. Seal All Waste or Keep it Outside

Fruit flies are attracted to the smells in open trash containers and will lay their eggs in your disposal. Most people keep their trash can in the kitchen for convenience, but this just keeps newborn fruit flies close to an endless food source and promotes a constant breeding cycle. Keep your trash in a can with a tight lid and place it as far away from where you store your food as possible. Consider storing your main garbage on the back porch, and regularly removing trash bags from the kitchen to this more remote location.
