Fruit Flies

Do you have a recurring problem with fruit flies? Every time you go into the kitchen there seems to be a flurry of activity near the sink, even if you don’t have any fruit. You may have a problem with your drain.

If you do have fruit or a plant, look to see if the fruit flies are coming from there. We were surprised to see these pests in an house plant.

Testing and Treatment

To test to see if the problem is, in fact, with your drain:

  • Cover your drains with something that is transparent
  • Watch for fruit flies

Simple enough, right! If you see them, pour a little boiling water down the drain and then scrub it well. The boiling water kills off the breeding cycle happening in your drain.


It’s not fun to eliminate pests. Some homeowners deal with them for months and occasionally, even years. Apply this advice to eliminate Fruit Flies. You can enjoy your kitchen again.
