Where do fruit flies come from, when i see them in my kitchen?
Fruit flies are common on almost every continent, except for Antartica. Fruit flies live outside, but do enter your home upon the attraction of sugar and sustements. Flies can detect where a food source is coming from. When you open a window (Perhaps for only a few seconds), a nearby fruit fly may detect what food is in your house and enter.
Lots of people believe flies live in their houses. That is of course, false. No insect just appears in your house. It has to enter, reproduce, and roam the place. That is the process of an urban insect.
