Hi i am growing almost every major seasonal vegetable under sun in my garden. i have encountered almost every kind of bug from leaf miner to aphids and managed successfully. But lately i have started having a fly larvae infestation in my developing vegetables, the lower would develop into fruit and get larvae just before maturing. Is there any organic solution to this, if even partial? i don't want to use chemicals that are poisonous because their presence in market vegetables is the reason i have started gardening.

Sometimes it might be not be possible to avoid chemical pesticides. In such cases use the ones that are color labeled Green, Blue, Yellow, Red. This signifies the safety for human / animal consumption. Green being safe and Red being not so safe for consumption after immediate pesticide application. Typically if you wait for 10 days after application of pesticides colored Red, all pesticides would have been removed from the plant and should be safe for consumption. I suggest you cross check this information though.
