What time of year are drain flies most common in West Palm Beach?
Drain fly season peaks in West Palm Beach in late summer months, but you can find drain flies in your home throughout the year.
What’s the difference between a drain fly and a fruit fly?
Drain flies are often confused with fruit flies due to their similar size and appearance. However, although they’re both flies, the two require different pest control methods, so it's important to be able to identify the differences between them.
Fruit flies are attracted to overripe or decaying fruits and vegetables, while drain flies are more interested in the moist organic matter found in drains. Visually speaking, fruit flies have bright red eyes while drain flies don’t, and their bodies lack drain flies' distinctive fur.
You'll also want to pay close attention to where you're seeing fly activity. Are they staying close to the fruit bowl on your counter, or are they spending more time in your bathroom?
If you're unsure whether the flies you're seeing are coming from a drain, place tape over the drain for twenty-four hours. Afterwards, remove the tape and check for any flies that got stuck while trying to emerge.
Do I need to prepare my home for drain fly control services?
No, we do not require any sort of preparation for drain fly control services.
Do drain flies bite?
No, drain flies don't bite. Their main focus is on finding moist areas to lay their eggs and feed on organic matter.
While drain flies might not directly harm you, their presence can be quite an annoyance. Taking action to eliminate them is good practice for maintaining a clean and hygienic living environment.
How do I get rid of drain flies in my home?
Clean and sanitize: The first step in getting rid of drain flies is to eliminate their breeding grounds. Regularly clean and sanitize your drains using a mixture of vinegar and baking soda. Pour this mixture down the drain, followed by hot water, to break down the organic matter that attracts drain flies.
Boiling water: Boil a pot of water and carefully pour it down the drain. The heat will help dislodge and flush away debris that serves as a breeding site for drain flies. Make sure to let the water cool for a few seconds beforehand, as temperatures above 140ºF can damage most pipes.
Bio drain gel: Consider using a natural bio drain gel. These gels contain enzymes that break down organic matter and help prevent drain fly infestations. Bio drain gels are eco-friendly and can be effective in reducing breeding sites.
Drain traps: Installing drain traps or strainers over your drains can prevent organic matter from accumulating and provide a barrier against drain flies. Just make sure to regularly empty out the strainer, or else drain flies might make that their new breeding site - I'm speaking from experience!
Essential oils: Essential oils like citrus, eucalyptus, or tea tree oil, can repel drain flies. Mix a few drops of your chosen oil with water and spray it near drains and breeding areas.
Homemade traps: Once you've cleared out your drains to prevent future fly breeding, it's time to focus on getting rid of the flies that are already in your home. Create a simple trap by mixing apple cider vinegar with a few drops of dish soap in a bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in it. The scent will attract the flies, and they'll get trapped in the soapy liquid.
Regular maintenance: Prevent future infestations by maintaining good hygiene habits. Keep drains clean, promptly fix leaks, and ensure proper ventilation in areas prone to moisture.
