Description:

Native to North America is black with white stripes on the thorax and gold bars across its wings.

Cherry fruit fly eggs are yellow and are laid inside almost ripe fruit. The maggots develop from eggs laid in the cherries and feed until they are full-grown, causing the fruit to be undersized or decayed. When the larvae reach maturity, they eat their way out and drop to the ground.
