gnats/fruit flies


Hello:

I have some little fly-like things in my bathroom that I think are gnats or fruit flies (assuming there is any difference). That's really the only place in the apt where I see them. How do I kill them?

Thanks,

John

We need to know the specie of fly. That will point us in the right direction to discover their source. Oftentime small flies are coming from a source that requires drain cleaning, plumbing repairs, detective work to find rotting food, organic debris wet from roof leaks/condensate drains, etc. Proper ID is the first step. Can you post photo's or do the research/legwork?

That's a start. But the thread doesn't contain many concrete solutions. Are you supposed to just pour something down the drain?

Identifying the specie will show us what, where, they like to breed/live in. To try a treatment prior to knowing this is literally shooting in the dark; oftentimes wasting time and resources.
