Preventive Steps recommended by us for Drain fly Control
- Take a clean white Plastic Bag. Put a layer of petroleum on the inner surface. Put the bag over the suspicious drain. Leave it there for days and check it regularly.
- Glue Board: Place glue board upside down on the drain. Keep it for a few days and check it daily. If the moth comes out it will get stuck to the board and you will have found the entry point. If no moth comes for a few days then try a different drain pipe. If you don’t find any inside the house try the drains directly outside. Once you find it you can remove and clean it and make sure that moths are not attracted to your home.
- Use a hard brush to clean the drain.
- Repair all leaky pipes
- Do not let water collect anywhere and clear it up immediately.
- Although they are an important water based part of the ecosystem, when their population grows, it becomes a serious nuisance for households. They are found in places that stay wet and damp and where they can find nutrients a plenty, such as drains.
- To prevent future drain fly infestations, clean your drains once a week. Start by dumping 1/2 cup salt down the drain. Then dump 1/2 cup baking soda down on top of it. Follow that with 1 cup of plain white vinegar, and let the fun begin.
