Drain Flies Go Away!
Drain flies are a fairly common problem in kitchens and it is good to know how to make them go away. Insects are fascinating and what’s most interesting is how they manage to get into your house. The windows are closed, the doors are closed and yet they manage to appear. While some bugs, like fruit flies, can come in on the fruit you buy, drain flies come up through the drains and could be a sign of a slow or clogged piping.
Drain flies feed on the food particles that sit in your drain and water alone won’t kill them or make them go away. They actually nest and breed in standing water. They love the slimy film that can line your pipes if you have a slow drain or clogged sewer. These pests are annoying and just creepy and you don’t want them in your kitchen or bathroom pipes.
How Do I Change The Environment To Make Drain Flies Go Away?
To make drain flies go away, you have to make your kitchen and other pipes less hospitable for them. You have to remove their food supply and eliminate their breeding grounds. It is important to not leave dirty dishes in the sink or pour organic matter down the drain. This can slow the movement of the water or clog it, providing the environment for these pests to breed and thrive.
Unfortunately, pouring drain cleaner down the pipes is not a good solution. There are do it yourself methods such as trapping the drain flies with various concoctions, but if the cause is a clogged drain or sewer pipe they may return.
