Drain Flies are pesky little pests that ruin your day whenever you see them. Have you noticed any small, moth-like creatures around your toilet or shower? Then it is very likely that you have got a Drain Flies infestation on your hands.
Drain flies commonly go by a few nicknames such as moth flies or sink flies. They are about the same size as gnats and fruit flies—between 2mm and 5mm—but can be distinguished by their small, moth-like wings and round, fuzzy bodies.
