Dill Talks to WLBZ About Fruit Flies in the Home

James Dill, pest management specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with WLBZ (Channel 2) about a possible increase in fruit flies in Maine homes. Dill said his office has already taken many complaints from residents dealing with fruit flies, and he’s not sure why they seem to be more of a problem this year. He said the best way to get rid of the pests is to throw away or refrigerate ripe fruit and use either homemade or commercial fruit fly traps.
