The two species we have found of the greatest concern is the Queensland fruit fly( Bactrocera tryoni) and the cucumber fruit fly (Bactrocera cucumis).
The adults have brown bodies with yellow markings.
The house fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), also called vinegar fly, which hangs around ripe and decaying fruit is not a pest in the garden.
The Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata) is a small fly, 3-5 mm, native to Africa. In Australia it is confined to Western Australia. It has a yellow body and legs, and a brown upper body with a pale yellow pattern. The wings have yellow and brown colouring on them.
Adult size: 6-8 mm
