Jaime. Open up one of the chili's, if is crawling with Grubs it is more than likely fruit fly. Make sure you put the spoiled fruit in a bucket of wate to kill the grubs. Then into the bin. Do not put int the compost, or the mulch at the botom of your plants. I'm still looking for a way to prevent the fly in the first place.
