Do Fruit Flies Bite Humans?

House Flies

Have you been noticing a few itchy red bumps on your body? Has there been a lot of tiny flies around the house? You are probably wondering if those itchy bumps are a result of bites from fruit flies. Well, the answer to this is no. They don’t bite humans.

Fruit flies don’t have biting mouth parts because they prefer to feed on overripe or decaying fruits. It’s possible that you are getting bitten from other species of tiny flies that resemble the appearance of a fruit fly. This may include midges, no-see-ums, or black flies.
