Killing Drain Flies


How do you kill drain flies?

Killing Drain Flies

Clean your drains. Use 1 part salt, 2 parts baking soda packed slightly into the drain, and add one part vinegar. Let it foam until the fizzing stops completely, then flush well with warm water to clean the lines.

The flies should disappear but if any remain, pour a mild bleach solution like 1 part bleach to 10 parts water into the drains slowly and let sit for a few hours before flushing with cold water.

I recommend doing the safe environmentally friendly and very effective cleaning first and once a month or so after that. It's really effective and while bleach will disinfect it won't scour the pipe walls and get rid of gunk like the baking soda mixture.

Any vinegar will do and don't worry, you won't be smelling vinegar in your kitchen when you're done. It will just be fresh and clean. (03/28/2009)

Killing Drain Flies

I've never heard of drain flies before so wanted to see what they were :-) I came across these two links that talk about the need to first get rid of the source of the flies (gunk and nests).

I hope these are helpful for your particular situation. (03/28/2009)
