Fruit Fly Larvae – Fruit Fly Maggots
Like many other insects, fruit flies pass through egg, larva and pupa stages before emerging as sexually mature adults.
Fertilized females lay their eggs in overripe fruit and other sources of soft, sweet, decaying matter. Depending on the species, this behavior can be detrimental or beneficial to the local environment. For example, some species can act as scavengers and are beneficial; however, inside homes, this is not the case. Each female typically produces hundreds of eggs.
Larvae are the small wormlike early stages of fruit flies. These larvae prefer the wet fermenting areas near fruit or other sweet items. They can also be found commercially in baking areas where sweet fruit fillings may have fallen and have been moistened with wash water.
