The name for Drain Flies is derived from their preferred breeding grounds, which is inside of sinks, tubs and commercial drains. Also referred to as moth flies, this pest can turn into an overwhelming issue at alarmingly fast rates. High yield, rapid breeding, and breeding grounds that arenít always visible to the human eye, can be cause for a home pest control solution.
The larvae of the Drain flies feed on the organic matter, the sediment, and decaying vegetation.
It can be challenging to identify a drain fly because they can resemble and be mistaken for miniature grey moths. Even adult flies are minute in size, and are covered with grey, short hairs on the wing and body. Held flat against the body, wings are an oval shape. Drain flies do not bite, and can be also seen congregating on ceilings or walls, and travel with a hopping flight.
