What are Drain Flies?
Drain Flies

Drain flies are small flies that are attracted to the organic material that builds up in sink drains, shower drains, floor drains and other places where decaying organic matter would be. These small flies show up quickly and can reproduce fast. You will need to check the drain to be sure you actually have drain flies and not some other kind of fly.
