About Queensland Fruit Fly

Photo: Applied Horticulture Research

Queensland Fruit Fly (QFF) is only very small but can be easily identified once you know what you are looking for.
Fruit fly can be identified using the online tool developed by Plant Health Australia (click here) or comparing the descriptions and illustrations provided on the "Identifying QFF" page below.
Understanding the lifecycle can help improve the application of control strategies so that the number of larvae (maggots) in fruit and fruiting vegetables is reduced.
