Small flies

Postby ashtondav » Fri Dec 08, 2017 8:37 am

Whenever we leave our property empty for a month or more we get loads of very small flies. Judging from their presence they appear to come up the drain of the shower in one bathroom only.

Any prevention ideas - other than fly killer on our return.

You could try putting bleach down the plug hole before you leave.

Is there a drain cover?

Does the shower have a u-bend ? Normally they would not come up past a u-bend, but perhaps it is drying out if you are away a long time. Only other solution would be to put some sort of cap over the shower drain outlet, and perhaps stick it down with masking tape for easy removal when you come back.
