Why Professional Treatment is your Best Solution for Drain Flies

Have you heard of the household pest known as drain flies?


They are not only resilient, but they are also a frequent unwelcome guest in Perth homes. You can normally find them in drains, sinks, bathtubs, showers and other hidden plumbing areas. As they reproduce extremely quickly, it can be hard to get rid of them entirely.


What are drain flies?


They are moth-like small insects that are normally near stagnant water. This can be your kitchen, outdoor sink, shower, bathtub drains, sewers and septic tank. As they feed on organic matter, they prefer to be around waste water.


DIY solutions


Due to the fact drain flies reproduce like wildfire it is very hard to get rid of them on your own entirely. However, you will be able to reduce their population in your house for a short period of time. You can do this by regularly wiping down your drain pipes to remove any food particles.
