Most people probably consider fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) little more than a nuisance pest, but this can be a serious miscalculation. Fruit flies have been proven to be vectors for the very dangerous Escherichia coli (E.coli) bacteria in addition to other pathogens that all flies transmit such as Salmonella, Staphylococcus and Shigella. The fact that fruit flies hitchhike on any produce brought in from the garden or from the store and can breed indoors where there are fermenting foods or moist areas means that they can quickly and easily spread contamination throughout your food preparation areas.
Female fruit flies can deposit as many as 500 eggs wherever there is a film of fermenting material; 30 hours later there will be larvae emerging to feed and within a week you will have mass of adults. Aunt Fannie's FlyPunch! can help keep your kitchen free from the adults and prevent future generations from establishing themselves.
Aunt Fannie's FlyPunch! has a unique formulation that attracts, disables and kills fruit flies. The attractant will draw the fly away from the countertops, fruits and drains they love and into the DiveJar dispenser. Once they touch the substance inside the DiveJar, the disabling agent quickly goes to work to break down their exoskeleton. This prevents the fruit fly from exiting the DiveJar. There is an additional ingredient in this formulation that draws the disabled insect down into the liquid, where drowning will finish them off if the disabling agent did not. This process works the same on adults as it does on the newly hatched and feeding larvae. For optimal fruit fly control, we recommend active replenishment and multiple stations of your Aunt Fannie's FlyPunch!
Aunt Fannie's FlyPunch! is ready to go to work as soon as you open it; no mixing or assembly is required. Once your DiveJar is full, you can simply dispose of the whole thing. Do not pour contents down any drain, indoors or outdoors.
