Drain FlyDrain flies, otherwise known as sink flies, filter flies, or sewer gnats are tiny flies that live and reproduce in drains. They look like tiny moths, 1.5 to 5mm long. Their bodies and wings are covered with long hairs, giving them a fuzzy appearance. They are a persistent problem in certain types of environments where they find their food source abundant. Drain flies feed on bacteria. As a result, hey find drains where organic matter is flushed repeatedly to be the perfect habitat to eat, live, and reproduce.
