Oriental Fruit Fly, recognize it
The adult fly is slightly larger than a housefly and is very colorful, with a yellow-striped abdomen and yellowish legs. The white maggots can be found burrowing though fruit. Infested fruit does not always look damaged from the outside but take on a brown, mottled appearance as the maggots feed.
