Getting Rid of Black Flying Biting Insects in Drains?

I have black flying insects that bite in my house and they are driving me crazy. We were told by personnel at the hardware store to pour bleach down all of the drains, starting at the top of the house. I first saw them in my shower, coming from the drain. They are in my laundry room, probably from the floor drain. I have seen them upstairs now in the main bathroom and the kitchen sink. The bleach has not done anything.

I have red welts and a rash all over my arms, hands, and shoulders. I don't know about my back, but it is always itchy. So is my head. I am going crazy and can't sleep. I hate to go into the bathroom at night, because I have to start picking up the bodies after spraying with Raid Max. Nothing works. They just keep coming back, they never go away. Help.

When you put bleach down drains, do you have a stopper to put over drain holes? You could try vinegar and baking soda. I heat up vinegar in microwave, then pour baking soda in drain and then pour vinegar. I've used this to unstop drains.

Note: after it stops bubbling from the vinegar and baking soda, put stopper over night. I hope this works or you find a solution.

Have you tried the bleach and then plugging or covering the drains so they can't come out?
