Answer: It sounds like you have a fruit fly infestation. Pick up any fruit that has been dropped and dispose of it off site, not in your compost.
To stop this from happening again you can use Nature’s Way Fruit Fly Control, this product combines an irresistible bait with an insecticide. When the female fruit fly emerges from her pupal case in the soil she seeks out this product in ingests the insecticide.
You should start applying this product as soon as fruit fly’s are present. You can find when they are present by using a homemade fruit fly trap, you can find the instructions to make one at the following link
