Cheese Skipper

A small shiny black fly with reddish eyes whose slender grubs “skip” by curving their body into a ring and releasing themselves.
The larvae burrow into cheese or ham and can cause internal irritation if eaten.

REMEDY: Keep storage shelves free from grease or cheese crumbs and keep meat and cheese covered in a cool place. If infestation occurs, remove food, thoroughly clean surfaces and spray or dust with a product labelled for fly control.
