These species of flies have a variety of common names including moth fly, filter fly, sewage fly, but are most commonly known as the drain fly. Their name "moth fly" comes mainly from their physical similarities to the moth species and the other common names like filter fly, sewage fly and drain fly come from the places where they will typically breed and develop. Although they are mostly just a nuisance pest and will not cause much harm, the reason you need to control them is there have been cases where inhaling drain flies have caused biological reactions like asthma in some people. Drain flies are commonly found throughout the United States and their population is spread out all over the world.

Q. drain flies
Do the larvae look like tiny black inchworms? And do your products also kill the larvae? My kitchen is kept very clean yet I can't get rid of them. Now today I found a mountain of these little worms.
A.   Many insects that go through a complete life cycle have a larva stage where the larva looks like worms and which is the reason why they are most commonly known as the caterpillar stage. We recommend using drain gel. Drain flies will breed in the build up and debris that has built up inside the drain. Drain gel will clear the drain of the build up and get rid of breeding sites for drain flies.

Q. Drain Flies
We had a problem with drain flies due to an unknown plumbing leak which has now been repaired. We have fogged under the house, sprayed the outside and inside of the house and cleaned drains as well as pouring boiling water down all drains. Is there anything else we should do to get rid of these or should that we sufficient? We are seeing less; however do I need to continue some treatment until we don't see any more?
A.   I would recommend drain gel. Pouring hot water down the drains may help but may not have fully taken down their nests inside the drain. A good way to monitor their activity is to place a glue board slightly creased in the center on top of the entrance of the drain. It should look like a tent on top of the drain.
