Or flowers in the house. They seem to be everywhere, what would be causing them to be in the house & how do I get rid of them. I’ve tried swatting them & spraying them but they’re still around. Can you help me out pls - many thanks

Answer: Hi Lindy,
Thank you for contacting Yates.

The pest looks like a normal household fly instead of fruit fly. Unfortunately, we do not have any product registered to control this pest, best to check your local hardware stores for other alternatives.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
