Fruit Flies

up close picture of a fruit fly

Fruit flies are very small, measuring only about an eighth of an inch long. They are tan with black stripes on the abdomen, with males having a full black abdominal tip. They have red eyes and have clear wings. Adult males will also have a distinctive black spot on the tip of their wings.

The common fruit fly (drosophilia melanogaster), also known as a vinegar fly, is the most common inside Virginia homes.
