Fruit flies do not see colors in the way that humans do. They have specialize vision that allows them to see shades but not colors directly.

Fruit flies are attracted to the smell of the fruit, they fly to the fruit to get to it. There they breed and lay their eggs so some fruit flies are born on the fruit.

The vision of flies does not capture the entire visible light spectrum. Many flies see colors as shades of yellow and blue which is why they are attracted to these colors.

Fruit flies infest fruit by actually burrowing into the fruit, and laying their eggs inside of it. So when they hatch, the fruit flies then devour their environment

Because fruit flies have small cell counts Because the life cycle of a fruit fly is short enough to actually see a change in a short period of time. With larger animals, it could take many years to see an actual change. With fruit flies, you can see many generations of change in a shorter period of time.

Two fruit flies having the same red eye color is an example of two organisms that are homozygous for the eye color trait. If the fruit flies had different eye colors, then they would be heterozygous for the trait.

When humans see fruit flies, they instinctively try to chase them away. Many households have a spray that can be used to kill the flying insects.

Fruit Flies can sense other types of food too, like grains or vegetables. Also its very important to note that fruit flies do not only breed on fruit. Any sugary substance or even your rubbish bins can be perfect places for fruit flies. More information can be found here: http://www.thebugsquad.com/fruit-flies/how-to-get-rid-of-fruit-flies

Fruit flies may be a bit too big for a Guppy. I would try it and see. They won't do the guppies any harm anyway provided you remove them if they are not eaten.
