Products for Eliminating Drain Fly Infestations
Fly Control in Drains
Fruit flies and drain flies (also called Moth
Flies) will breed in the thin layers of material that accumulate in the
drains and traps of sinks and bathtubs and also in floor drains of older
buildings, commercial buildings. Bleach and other harsh chemicals rarely
work when attempting to eliminate this fly breeding slime.
Products such as Invade Bio Drain and Invade
Bio Foam can safely be used in drains where small flies are breeding.
Severe infestations often require an initial application that combines one of
the above products with either NyGuard IGR or Gentrol IGR. These insect
growth regulators will drastically slow down development of fly larvae - and
The action of
these materials breaks down the thin layers in which small flies breed. In
older buildings, restaurants and other commercial food handling areas, a drain
cleaner should be used on a regular basis to prevent problems associated with
drain line build up: odors and flies.
Invade Bio Drain and Invade
Bio Foam are similar but you should choose the one that best
suits your pest control job. Invade Bio Drain Gel costs less (for small jobs) while
Invade Bio Foam saves you money for larger jobs and it also contains a foaming agent

and traps. Invade Bio Foam must be used with a foamer such as Chapin
Poly Foamer or B&G
Restaurants and other independent businesses prefer the Chapin Poly Foamer.

For severe or stubborn drain fly infestations, an IGR
containing Hydroprene can be used in combination
with your drain cleaner. Gentrol IGR
is easily mixed and applied to drains and works especially well when foamed with
MicroFoam. Gentrol prevents immature flies from maturing into adult
flies. By combining Gentrol and MicroFoam you create a very effective foam
for forcing down drains when eliminating drain fly or fruit fly infestations by
eliminating the breeding source and preventing the emergence of adult flies from
the drains. Use a foaming device for this type of
For simple maintenance, Gentrol Aerosol can
also be used in drains.
Combing drain products with Ultraviolet fly
traps is a good idea for restaurants and buffets,
for a total indoor fly control program.
